With a built in fully-functional Amazon Alexa, you get access to 1000s of skills and commands. If you’re not into the mirror look, you can use it as a photo frame and upload your own photos, or choose from their 50,000 photo collection from renowned museums.



Finally, there’s a slimmer, more efficient, and more attractive window air conditioner, Noria. It’s 40% smaller than a traditional AC unit, with an attractive interface that – you guessed it – can be controlled via your smartphone. It’s easy to install and creates a sealed, secure socket in the window, so there’s no precarious balancing. It also directs cool air up towards the ceiling, creating a convective cycle that prevents cold and hot spots in the room. There’s nothing cooler.
