I think I’m living in a strange world. With all the technology swirling around my head I find myself asking, “I wonder if I could REST enable that” or “I wonder if I could automate that device with micro services.” Yes, I am crazy!!!
Case and point: I bought my six-year-old son a remote control digger. It wasn’t terribly expensive, but it was also not terribly good. The remote control was cumbersome and it couldn’t do very much. The “I wonder if I could automate that” in me decided to make a few modifications. That led to a few more modifications…. The final result was a pretty cool remote control digger!
I mention it here on this blog because I also asked the question “I wonder if I could REST enable that” too. Yes… yes I can. What am I going to do with that? I have no idea. I have grand ideas of being able to say, “Alexa, dig a swimming pool in the back yard” followed by the wonderful Alexa reply, “Ok.”
Here is a link to all the details on this project in case anyone would like to do something similar.
Thanks for reading.
