Amazon has been on an incredible journey, from starting in a garage in 1994, to being one of the most influential tech companies in the world. It is quite literally taking over our lives and the world.
It recently unveiled the Echo Look; which is a voice-controlled camera that can take social-media ready ‘selfies’ of your outfit and even offer fashion advice through the electronic assistant, Alexa. Echo Look is able to perform all the duties that Alexa can offer, but with a lense.
This brings me onto Alexa, which could quite literally be the first thing you speak to in the morning (and the last at night). It can tell you what the weather will be like, what's on the agenda for you today and what you should wear, whilst updating you with the latest news.
But it doesn’t end there; on your daily commute to work, you can pick up your Kindle and continue reading where you left off. On your lunch break, you could head online and do your weekly food shop with Amazon Fresh, and when you get home, you can put your feet up, relax and watch your favourite series on Amazon Video.
And at the end of the day when you get into bed, you can ask Alexa to turn the lights off.
Pretty remarkable how far Amazon has come, but this is just a snippet of what’s to come for the future of technology. We will continue to see an explosion of new and innovative gadgets that will fit into our everyday lives like puzzle pieces.
