We have already seen Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa being bundled with ovens and clocks. Why stop there?! Here are some new devices — showcased this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas — that are Alexa enabled.
Ecovacs Robotics: The new line of cleaning robots include the Deebot Ozmo 960, an AI-powered floor-cleaning device that recognises household obstacles (cables, shoes, socks and charging docks) so that one doesn’t have to remove them before vacuuming. Also showcased is the Atomobot, a smart autonomous air-purifying robot that features a laser distance sensor and ultra-sonic sensors to create a virtual map of the surroundings.
Leviton: The provider of wireless smart home technology and electrical wiring has two new devices to control lamps, small appliances and other electronics — the Decora Smart Wi-Fi In-Wall Receptacle and the Decora Smart Z-Wave Plus In-Wall Receptacle.
Human Touch: The company’s Super Novo massage chair is paired with Alexa’s voice recognition. The chair also has a set of meditation programmes that combine with a soothing soundtrack and massage to help users focus on their breathing.
Lockly: The company’s new Secure Pro can be unlocked five ways — a keypad that generates numbers in random order (every time it’s different), a fingerprint scanner, key hole, app or voice command (Alexa or Google Assistant).
ShadeCraft: Not many had thought about this one but ShadeCraft’s Bloom can unfurl and retract parasols with voice commands.
Hisense: The H8F series Android TV has Google Assistant voice control built-in and the set also works with Amazon Alexa.
Vuzix: The Vuzix Blade headset is like sunglasses but you can see a projection of information on the inside of the screen.
Jarvish: Smart helmets, like the Jarvish X-AR, can be helpful. It comes with integrated microphones and speakers so wearers can access directions, weather updates and control music through voice control. Also included is a built-in front-facing camera to record rides.
Eyelights: The French company has a vehicle solution that broadcasts smartphone displays onto the windshield and it has Alexa in the mix.
Xandar Kardian: The solution offers autonomous monitoring of vital signs 24/7 and it’s compatible with Amazon Alexa.
