The Fact This Hacker Turned on His Car With Amazon Echo is a Bit Unnerving

By: | April 4th, 2016


I don’t think this is what Amazon had in mind when developing the company’s Echo product, AKA Alexa.

Recently, YouTuber jryanishere hacked his car with Amazon Echo, remotely starting the vehicle with a Raspberry Pi, an OBDLink, and a few lines of code.

In fact, since the original Echo hack video was so short and attained so much attention, the man made another video (seen below) explaining how he did it.

Honestly, jryan’s blog post explanation is over my head and tedious to read, so if you’re interested in learning how to start your car with Amazon Echo, I highly suggest checking it out.
