#corgibot is my first foray into the world of IOT or the Internet of Things. It is constructed from cardstock, popsicle sticks, and glue. It is powered by a Photon board from particle.io, one servo, and one speaker (reclaimed from a talking greeting card. Together these pieces create an internet connected robot dog capable of barking and shaking it's head when it receives a notification from nearly any data source I'd like. It's currently hooked into my work team's Slack chat application, to bark whenever a command is typed into the app.
