Amazon has published a guide for how people can build and test their own device powered by its Alexa Voice Service, which allows hardware makers to build its virtual assistant into their devices. With this new guide, Amazon tells you how to get Alexa Voice Service up and running with a Raspberry Pi.
From Amazon's GitHub page:
Of course, to get started, you'll need a Raspberry Pi 2 circuit board, which you can find on Amazon for about $37. You'll also need additional hardware, including a microSD card, a micro-USB power cable, and a microphone. Once you've got everything set up, you'll be able to request music playback, set an alarm, ask general knowledge questions, and more.
