“Hey Robot Fans! Today, we make our very own Amazon Voice Services controlled L3-37 from the Star Wars Movie SOLO.

The droid is powered by a Raspberry Pi 3 mini PC which has been combined with a wide variety of other components and servos including an Arduino Nano, NeoPixels, audio amplifier and 3D printer parts. For more information jump over to Patrick’s official YouTube channel by the link below.
