The Voice Photo Booth

Playing around with the Echo Look, one interesting feature that immediately comes to mind is the photo booth. It would be great if there was a photo booth mode that could take multiple photos. It would be even better if there was an API for creating a photo stream.

“Alexa, take a photo” is a really quick way to activate the Echo Look.

There’s no reason why this feature couldn’t be implemented on any web cam or even laptop camera. Mac Photo Booth should have this feature. So should the Nest cam / Arlo / Netcam / Ring or any number of others.

If someone was really enterprising, building a voice enabled photo booth a raspi would be a great project.

One can dream…
