Check this out. There's this new product now made by Amazon.com called Amazon Echo that is like a talking Star Trek like computer that does multiple things. You can talk to it and issue verbal commands like they do on Star Trek. It only costs $179. See below.



What is Amazon Echo?

Amazon Echo is designed around your voice. It's hands-free and always on. With seven microphones and beam-forming technology, Echo can hear you from across the room—even while music is playing. Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound.

Echo connects to Alexa, a cloud-based voice service, to provide information, answer questions, play music, read the news, check sports scores or the weather, and more—instantly. All you have to do is ask. Echo begins working as soon as it detects the wake word. You can pick Alexa or Amazon as your wake word.
