Did you hear about the laughing Echos? There might also be Echos that light up in the middle of the night speaking in tongues.
I’m not saying that weird things and hacks aren’t possible with the Echo but we’re probably going to see more doctored experiences than genuine hacks. Think Apple’s Bend Gate and the flood of videos of people working a little too hard to bend their phones.
We’ll probably see a lot of these claims coming out because of the mystery box nature of voice first devices. Many more people have these devices and overall, fewer understand the underlying technologies that drive these products.
That said, there will be some cool hacks. Who said that?
