It seems that Amazon is not running out of new ideas and releases.
Now, they are announcing Alexa Gadgets, a playful product line that will make your home games even more enjoyable with family and friends. They are voice-enabled products that work with Echo devices.
Discover Echo Buttons
The first on the line is the Echo Button, a small hockey-sized illuminating button that can be pressed to trigger Alexa-powered gameplay experiences.
It works like those buttons in game shows wherein you need to push the button to be able to answer the trivia question.
Is trivia games all it can do?
Although it’s not yet known how these buttons exactly work, I’m sure Amazon has thought of different ways on how it can be used.
Just using it as a trigger would be ridiculous.
During a press event, it was demonstrated that the buttons will work with a couple of Alexa skills like the ones below.
We’re kind of excited how we can use it at home. This would be another technology that will enable human interaction than isolate it. If you’ve got kids, I think these buttons would make a nice home entertainment addition.
These Echo Buttons are said to be released this December and will cost $19.99 each. Get notified when the buttons are available here.
