I’ve decided to bring together a little project for myself. I’ve recently been researching a WiFi Coffee Machine from Amazon.
The idea here is to send over commands from a artificial intelligence communication bot we call HUBOT, this bot will be listening in a work based chat room for certain terminology.
When the bot picks up a phrase “Hubot please make a brew” it will send the commands to the coffee maker which will start processing the coffee. I intend to complete this project and allow my work colleagues and I to send it commands from either the app or the Hubot chat room.
This will have to be deactivated at certain time intervals to prevent hacking the device which I’ve found to be possible here.
This is going to be an exciting experiment and I’ll keep you posted as I go along!
