Using Blockstack to Interface with IOT devices such as Alexa


#1

Hi All,

Was just wondering has anyone tried building a app that pulls data from gaia storage to an external device such as Amazon Alexa before?

So basically we want to try building a simple app on alexa that dynamically pull data from gaia storage when a user consent it. Thanks

I have not personally seen anyone try and build a Blockstack app using Alexa.

However, you could definitely make an Alexa skill that pulls data from Gaia - it’s just a normal web server. If you needed to ‘authenticate’ and be able to fetch and decrypt private data, I think you could do that, but I’m not familiar enough with Alexa to know how.
