Amazon has unveiled a slew of new devices at its annual Echo showcase in Seattle, home to its headquarters and that strange-looking orb building.
Amazon seems to be making hardware for fun at the moment. In this latest event it showed off new speakers, a solid Apple Pod rival and it is also giving Apple AirPods a run for their money with some Alexa-enabled earbuds.
Amazon is also getting into the mesh wireless game and it is set to upgrade Ring camera systems massively with Alexa-enabled responses. So, if someone comes to your house with a package, then Alexa will inform the postie as to what to do with it.
And if that wasn't all, it also revealed a pair of Alexa-enabled glasses. These may not be available to buy as of yet but it shows the breadth of Alexa products that are set to be released. It used to be that Amazon wanted Alexa in every room in the house, now it wants Alexa to be with you at all times.
Here are the new Alexa products that you can either pre-order now, or get an email from Amazon when they are ready.
