Now is the time to connect lantern to the Snips Assistant and test if it works. First, put the NeoPixel together with the Raspberry Pi controlling it inside the plastic lantern container (see earlier blog about how to make the container). Currently the Pi has there python scripts which will turn on red, blue and green lights. Other colors can be added later. There is a REST API service implemented using express framework.
There isn't much needed to change to the Snips Maker Kit as the Snips Assistant already installed. The assistant will make the corresponding REST API call to Pi controlling the lantern light color according the speech intent.
This is the video:
The next blog will be the last blog which I will talk about more technical details.
