I know this is simplistic and tougher to implement then I am depicting. I'm patient and reading and seeing what direction this all will go.


Yes, that is what I was hoping to do as well, but they do not have bluetooth microphones, only speakers. Not sure why amazon went that route, since we could be using it for phone conferences, HAL, et.,etc....maybe they will open it up one day.
