In our home, every time I try to talk to Alexa or Siri, my wife usually responds by saying, “What?”
And that’s now, in 2018. I can only imagine what life is going to be like in the coming years. We humans are going to have to find a new way to understand each other.
Because now that CES 2018 is wrapped, no new one individual product stands out, but one big theme does—voice computing.
Like it or not, most new tech and home products we purchase in the coming months will have voice controls. We’re talking everything from TVs, speakers and cars to refrigerators, stoves and even the shower and toilet.
We are the remote control to our future. So work on your diction, folks! Try this morning routine out:
“Alexa, turn off the alarm, Alexa play my favorite playlist from iHeartRadio, Alexa, ask Moen to turn on the shower at 98 degrees, Alexa I’m out of soap, order some new Ivory”—and this is before you even say good morning to the person you might be living with.
