WSJ: Amazon is making an Alexa-powered pill

Amazon is working on a brand new device imbued with Alexa’s powers, in line with The Wall avenue magazine. It won’t be but any other speaker, though: it is a device with a “tablet-like pc display screen” that’s codenamed Knight. Lab126, the organisation’s secretive hardware facility, is reportedly within the midst of developing the pill, which seems like it is meant for the kitchen. WSJ says it’ll allow users to load web sites or pictures “even when their hands are blanketed in flour.” Amazon has been operating on a excessive-quit kitchen computer for quite some time, but it’s doubtful if that is the reimagined version of that antique challenge.

WSJ failed to supply out more information about Knight, however if it has Alexa, then it’s secure to mention that it is able to respond to all the voice instructions you could use with the Echo audio system. Lab126, by way of the manner, also created Amazon’s other devices. It become originally formed to design the Kindle e-readers and went directly to develop the fire drugs, telephone and tv, the Echo and faucet speakers, in addition to the e-retailer’s dash buttons.
