The Flintstones to the Jetsons
“The future is here” is an oxymoron! but it has a ring of truth to it. We walk around with powerful computers in our pockets. Self-driving automobiles are a reality, and we even have robots that sweep and vacuum our floors. So why are we still walking from room to room, turning knobs, Flipping switches, and pushing buttons? instead of controlling everything with a voice command, and let Echo and Alexa do all the work.
From a futuristic spherically shaped speaker that fills the room with 360 acoustics. To a 10.1” HD screen that’s designed to move with you, so you are always in the picture. To glasses that keep you hands-free and constantly connected. The Amazon Echo series has an Alexa-enabled device that can fit any need and budget.
All Echo devices have Alexa built-in so you can play music, control smart home accessories, set times, make reminders, play games, create or edit grocery lists, check time or weather, and a lot more.
