Alexa Does Math (And Way More)
You must try the Amazon Echo.
You can ask Alexa almost anything. It's kinda scary.
Just buy an Amazon Echo. It's a one time purchase - no subscription. Then install and ask away.
- Ask for weather forecasts.
- Ask for anything on the internet.
- Ask to place a phone call.
- Ask for flight status.
- Ask to play music. If you have Amazon Prime Alexa will play 2 million songs for free!
But I had to try math, "Alexa, is 1949 a prime number?" She got it right. And fast.
I should also mention this. My mother-in-law is 94 and she lives alone. Obviously there is much she cannot do. But I setup Alexa for her. And she uses it constantly for..
-Switching lights on and off (and dimming them)
-Switching the TV on and off (and changing volume)
-Placing phone calls
-Playing her favorite music
-Getting flight status information
Alexa is an amazing tool to the elderly. I wish this got more publicity.
