Upgrade your nightstand
It’s no secret that we love the Amazon Echo; what I initially wrote off as a bizarre little gadget quickly became our current favorite smart home gadget. There’s something about that readily-available combination of knowledge and speed that turns any home into a makeshift sci-fi wonderland. The only drawback is that now I want them all over my house.
After wrapping up a covert operation to read my mind, Amazon announced the diminutive $89Echo Dot this spring, introducing a wonderful companion device to the original Echo that won’t break the bank. Essentially just an Echo without the high-fidelity speaker, the Echo Dot keeps the “far-field” voice recognition system to bring you all of Alexa’s intelligence in rooms where booming acoustics aren’t needed (or desired).
Our full-sized Echo has been comfortably at home in our high-traffic kitchen for months, but the Dot would be perfect for our nightstand, bonus room, and other locations where it would be handy to verbally command the house or get a quick peek at the weather and news. The Echo lineup is a trojan-horse into Amazon’s surprisingly fantastic AI projects, and they definitely know what they’re doing.
You can pick up an Echo Dot (or two) for your family at the link below; expect a full review in the coming months!
