Amazon Echo Defines Words in Devastating Detail

Our Tech Void staff is quite pleased due to snagging an Amazon Echo to review this holiday. The device is a voice-automated personal assistant named Alexa, much like Siri or Cortana. Of course, this $99 (for Prime members) tabletop voice box is loaded with Amazon’s own database of product information and services (Amazon Prime Music/Video/Books etc.) Currently invites from Amazon are required to purchase the Echo.

But in the midst of an otherwise run-of-the-mill gadget review, we have found a few Easter eggs that left us in stitches. Case in point: Alexa defining or answering almost any question you could ask of her. Our reviewer found one particularly excruciatingly detailed definition of the word “coitus.”  For full context, check out the video below for a quick laugh. Clearly parents may have their hands full with this informative gadget.

Have any other questions we should ask Alexa? Let us know in the comments below. Stay tuned for our full review.

    Ask it how much money Amazon has lost with the Fire phone and why on earth they would plan to release another one.

    I got my Echo this weekend and stumbled across this video. The funny thing is that when I played the video, my “Alexa” heard the question, woke up, and played the same answer.

    Moral of story….never play a video that uses the word Alexa in the same room with a real Alexa.
