How about a robot friend that can help you around the house

Posted on

After Siri, the voice of Apple gadgets, it is now the time to step up one level. Amazon announced to open sales for Amazon Echo, a cylinder-shaped device that can answer your every question, can help you around the house and can even entertain you with nice jokes.

According to Mashable.com, the price for such an intelligent device is 199 dollars and it measures 9 inches in hight. Using cloud technology, the device answers to the name Alexa and can inform you about the weather, can play your favourite music, can be an excellent alarm clock, can help you with random information and can even help you not to forget certain things.

The device comes with seven built-in microphones and sensors that pick up on your voice in any direction; it can hear you even when it’s playing music. Alexa’s creators say that the device gets „smarter” in time, learning your habits, routines, speech patterns and preferences, and saves this data in the cloud.
