Crowdfunding project of the week: COVI is an Alexa-powered light
Sunday is back and here at Android Authority we have yet another ‘Crowdfunding project of the week’ for you. This is where we highlight some of the hottest campaigns from sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Shall we jump right in?
Other featured projects:
- LAER laptop sleeve keeps all your devices charged
- Flipp is a “beautiful and simple” music remote
- UrbaNext turns any bicycle into an electric one
Have you been looking to get a digital assistant speaker? One of the best options is the Amazon Echo, but the fact that Alexa is open to manufacturers means plenty of other options are coming – COVI is one of them.
COVI is a smart light, but it can do much more than that. Because it runs Alexa, you can use it for anything Amazon’s AI assistant does. This includes controlling smart appliances, playing music, setting timers, call people and more.
This light is beautifully designed to look great in any room. And because it has the light element, you can get visual notifications, change the mood with different levels and more. It is pretty much an Echo with a smart light, all in a single package.
Interested? You can sign up to get a COVI by backing the Kickstarter project with as low as €139. You might have to wait quite a bit to get it, though. Estimated delivery is set to March 2018. Who is getting one?
