    Please do a video where you mod big mouth billy bass and an echo dot together into a Frankenstein to rule over all Frankenstein’s! Also when it’s done hang it on the wall of the kitchen set!

    If I was Lucas film/Disney I would make a Darth Vader and get James Jones's to allow them to sample his voice make a Vader statue and make it a stand alone Alexa device but with a Vader Voice. And other characters as well, if TomTom can do it Amazon can make Alexa do it. imagine the possibilities call in Michael cane and Alexa becomes Alfred Pennyworth. Of course Amazon would have to allow the manufacturer or yourself to set the wake word.

    3:45 , I like to think that someone has a bunch of those all synced to Alexa and one giant room with like 50 on each wall and when you say Alexa all the fish turn and stare at you until they finish responding.

    Notice the head and the tail never move together. One has to go back fully before the other can move. Thus, the motor turns one way to move the head and the other for the tail.

    The first motor actually drives both the head and tail. It spins one way to flip the tail and it moves the other way to make the head lift. There's another motor further inside to run the mouth.
