Remember Big Mouth Billy Bass, the most popular singing and dancing fish of the last three decades? Of course you do.
Teacher at Rhode Island School of Design Brian Kane has hacked his Alexa, the Siri of Amazon Echo, to speak through Big Mouth Billy Bass. He explained to Mashable that he created the hack using Arduino, an open-source platform used to create interactive electronics.
In the clip above, Kane asks Alexa the weather. The fish’s head immediately faces the camera and starts moving as Alexa responds with the local weather for Cambridge.
He captioned his video with “the future.” Remember the original?
