As we already wrote, today Andy Rubin (Andy Rubin), the creator of the mobile operating system Android, introduced the frameless Essential smartphone with a modular ecosystem. In addition to it, the intelligent home assistant Essential Home was also introduced, aimed at competing with Amazon Echo.
Essential Home features a compact design, its top is crowned by a slanted round touchscreen. It is activated in three ways – a voice command, a finger touch or a simple glance. The assistant offers all the basic functions of home smart gadgets and a little more. The artificial intelligence system is developed and improved.
For example, when playing music, Essential Home can determine that the user is involved in the conversation and automatically turn down the volume. He also takes notes on the usual activities of the user and can let you know when "it seems that something has gone wrong" or the light is left in vain left. Also Essential Home will remind you of the need to exit, blinking with light, and will take on such heaping tasks as setting timers, answering well-known questions and supporting the user in the course of what is happening.
The basis is the Ambient OS platform. The manufacturer has not yet confirmed directly that the basis of Android is, but this allows us to conclude the past statements of Andy Rubin.
At the moment, the exact delivery time and the price of Essential Home are not announced.
