Amazon Unveils Echo

Amazon just announced a new product that has people talking… literally. Amazon Ecko is an Internet connected device that responds to voice commands. Similar to Apple’s Siri or Microsoft’s Cortana, Echo allows you to speak your request and it responds accordingly. It is “always on” and responds via a predetermined voice command. Once invoked, Echo will complete your request using Amazon’s cloud services to retrieve information. It’s kind of like a personal robot for the home. They devices will sell for $199 and are currently available by invite only. Watch the video below to see more.
