Alexa is an AI voice only assistant made by Amazon for use in smart speakers and other devices. This small Hockey Puck size costs about $40 or $50 depending on if it is on sale or not.

The first thing you want to do is use parental controls on it so your daughter won’t order a $200 doll house with it like it was some sort of magic genie that greats wishes to children.

Most people use it for playing music or reading news from websites. It is a very good way to read books by having the AI read for you.

This reminds me of when the XBox One has a voice control, and people on TV saying XBox power off, would trigger it to turn off power even in the middle of a game, etc.

Star Trek had predicted a computer you can talk to in the 1960s, now it is reality.
