Highly recommended: Amazon Echo, the new addition to our kitchen. Super easy to set up, lot's of fun and extremely useful! We feel like we are in "2001: A Space Odyssey", and I feel like we're the Jetsons. Emilio Jr. is even giving it orders: "Alexa, play Elmo!". We can only imagine what his future will look like.
Yes it has its quirks but it is still fun and useful. Pair it with your Phillips Hue and ask it to turn the lights on and off. Which is some fun in itself.
