Imagine waking up to the soothing sounds of your very own personal butler giving you the day’s news, your schedule and then warning you about any traffic.
It’s something that fictional characters like Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne enjoy every morning but us mere mortals can only dream of, until now.
A New York based startup has created what it thinks is the closest we’ll get to having our very own AI-powered butler.
It’s called Duo, and essentially it’s a 27-inch mirror with a Full-HD touchscreen display built in and your very own personalised AI rather fittingly called ‘Albert’.
Duo describes its product as an AI computer for your home, and in many respects that looks to be pretty accurate.
The AI component ‘Albert’ can be heavily customised so you can change its name, gender, accent and even the types of jokes it tells.
For integrating into your house Duo comes with its own app store and open software allowing products and services to integrate with the mirror.
