Connected devices with Amazon's "Alexa Voice Service"

Amazon recently launched the "Alexa" Appkit which will allow developers to create new features for the voice recognition technology that powers the "Amazon Echo" home controller. The "Alexa Voice Service" (AVS) is now also being opened for other devices that are not sold on Amazon. This enables hobbyists and hardware producers to integrate the AVS into their own connected devices and use it without any restrictions. Use of the AVS is free and will boost the development of connected devices such as smart toys that allow users to ask for and receive information, as with the "Amazon Echo".
