Man Hacks Amazon's Alexa Into A Big Mouth Billy Bass

November 7, 2016


This is a short demonstration of the Big Mouth Billy Bass that artist and developer Brian Kane packed with Amazon's Alexa. Now whenever you have a question you just ask the fish. That would be pretty handy mounted on the wall in my living room. Except I want it to respond to "Hey Billy" instead of "Alexa." I also want it to constantly tell me how handsome and talented I am. Magic Fishy on the wall, who's the handsomest of them all? "The Rock." You're dead to me!

Keep going for a video of Billy giving a weather report.

Thanks to me, for trying hard and believing in myself, even though deep down I know I'll still fail.

    I'll be impressed when it can sing Alexa's commands like Billy Bass.

    That would require finding the original voice actor for Billy Bass and having him sit down for 10 hours a day of pronouncing dumb weird shit including single syllables and partial syllables and all that jazz. Terribly complicated process.

    Maybe you could modulate Alexa to sound like a male. Although it would probably sound kind of artificial and clunky at best. At worst it would be unintelligible.

    1 yr have passed since I quit my last job and i couldn't be happier now... I started freelancing on-line, over a website I discovered over internet, for a few hours every day, and I profit now much more than i did on my office job... Last pay-check i got was for 9k dollars... Great thing about this gig is that i have more time to spend with my family...

    Freelancing? Is that your fancy way of saying that you sell your ass for crack money?
