Amazon Echo ($199) is a mixture of Siri, and your favorite bluetooth speaker wrapped into one. Designed to work by voice control, it’s your own personal assistant in a small sleek package. Jack ask it a question and Echo will provide the answer. To wake Echo up just say “Alexa” and it will provide you with information, your favorite music, the weather, allow you to update lists, and much more. Using far-field voice recognition Echo can hear you anywhere in the room even with ambient noise or music playing. Because it gets information from the cloud, running on Amazon Web Services, Echo is always learning. Right now you can sign-up to get on the invite list. If you’re chosen you’ll have the ability to purchase echo in the coming weeks. If you have a prime account, you get $100 off of retail ($99).
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
