    Amazon Echo review, real world testing with the Amazon Echo Device

    Published on Mar 6, 2015

    Today we review the Amazon Echo. The Echo is cylinder shaped speaker that is connected to the internet and always listening and answering your questions. Here is how Amazon puts it -

    ALWAYS READY, CONNECTED, AND FAST. JUST ASK.
    Information, music, news, weather, and more—instantly
    Controlled by your voice for hands-free convenience
    Voice recognition hears you from across the room
    Connected to the cloud so it's always getting smarter

    Think Siri or Xbox One, but in our testing smarter, faster and less frustrating.

    As a Prime member we got the Amazon Echo for $99, but the retail will be $199,

    More on Amazon Echo -
    Amazon Echo is designed around your voice. It's always on—just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more. Echo begins working as soon as it detects the wake word. You can pick Alexa or Amazon as your wake word. Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound.

    Tucked under Echo's light ring is an array of seven microphones. These sensors use beam-forming technology to hear you from any direction. With enhanced noise cancellation, Echo can hear you ask a question even while it's playing music. Echo uses on-device keyword spotting to detect the wake word. When Echo detects the wake word, it lights up and streams audio to the cloud, where we leverage the power of Amazon Web Services to recognize and respond to your request.

    Echo's brain is in the cloud, running on Amazon Web Services so it continually learns and adds more functionality over time. The more you use Echo, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences.

    Echo has been fine-tuned to deliver crisp vocals with dynamic bass response. Its dual downward-firing speakers produce 360° omni-directional audio to fill the room with immersive sound. Echo provides hands-free voice control for Amazon Music, Prime Music, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn. Plus, Echo is Bluetooth-enabled so you can stream other popular music services like Spotify, iTunes, and Pandora from your phone or tablet.

    We have been very impressed with the Amazon Echo. The voice recognition, even from another room, is truly incredible. Echo will get better as Amazon uploads new features. We will do a follow-up review as the feature set expands.

    Amazon Echo review

    Published on Jun 25, 2015

    So excited to open our new Amazon Echo and let Alexa take over the living room! Well, almost. The new Amazon Echo is a very good listener. She can answer questions like "What is the weather?" "What time is it?" "Who wrote War and Peace?" and even has some surprises in store to questions like "What do you think of Siri?" And with your Amazon Prime account you ask Siri to play music just by mentioning the artist. Of course Alexa is happy to help you with your shopping- on Amazon. Tell Alexa you would like to reorder those cookies you ordered last week and it will gladly put in the order and charge your credit card- all based on you telling it to. A little scary if kids figure this out. But the Amazon Echo does have a lot of potential.

    Amazon Echo Controlled Wheelchair

    Published on Jul 12, 2015

    Amazon Echo is a device that is voice controlled and by default responds when you address "Alexa". One of Echo's features is to turn things on and off. Using a Raspberry Pi running a Hue emulator, Echo 'thinks' it's turning lights on and off but is really in effect controlling a wheelchair. The control scheme is direction(forward, reverse, left, or right) followed by duration in seconds (one, two, three, or four).
