    Brilliant! You can now talk to your shop. Perhaps you can train "her" to respond in witty comebacks, too...

    I remember a comedian complaining about the first TV remotes:

    "What is this world coming to when a guy is too darn lazy to tell his wife to get up and change the channel".

    You’re having too much fun! Tell us about the hose retractor.

    How much wallet need you have is based on how much mental energy you want to spend. Hence $100+ long ranger remotes and $400-$2000 ecogate setups. You will pay one way or another. Some of us pay with time researching and building or assembling things ourselves. Many times you cant even buy what we create in a one stop purchase or you seriously would not want to afford it if it was available. Read the tag line below.

    That is funny! But she is still a little too slow to be practical. But I do see potential!
    I am sure the folks at Kitty Hawk, NC that saw the Wright Brothers working on their contraption said that thing

    That's pretty neat. Does Alexa have proper hearing protection when machinery is running?
