In a really slick video, you can see a fantasy play out of how this anime version of the Amazon Echo would improve your lonely existence.
As you can see, the device gives its users a friendly, animated face to interact with rather than just a cold, lifeless hockey-puck-like Echo.
The friendly face also has a short skirt and is ready to do your bidding. She texts you messages to “have fun at work” and begs you to “come home early.” When you let her know that you’re on the way, she excitedly says “yaaay” and wakes from her own isolated life in a glass tube to turn on the lights for you.
When the protagonist of the video (you, he’s supposed to be you) arrives home, an almost unbearably sad scene occurs. As he goes to sleep he is thankful, thankful that someone is home for him. “Feels great,” he says.
