Like the idea of Amazon’s Alexa, but want it in a package with a little more personality than the Echo? Meet LG’s Hub robot, which can act as a friendly go-between with other pieces of smart home technology, as well as offer all the services available through Amazon’s Echo.
The Hub comes in two sizes, one small, one larger. They have touch screen faces and can even learn each family member’s face so it will able to greet you uniquely when it sees you.
No word yet on availability or pricing, but these are just one more example of the “Alexa everywhere” phenomenon that is a theme at this year’s CES.
