This looks like something Google would prank us with on April Fools... Fail...

I'll not buy a personal assistant unless its like big hero 6

This is one of the concept cool looking in commercial than in reality. Privacy may be an issue lots of intrusion if placed in living space with additional noise. Looks like tablet with big a speaker. Not bad but may not be too hot!

Haha interesting. What is really funny (if we can call it funny or better surrealism) in all these advertisements is, that everything always goes absolutely smooth and perfect and never and nothing ever goes wrong. Hopefully everything in the real life will be exactly like that. (and hey, compliments to the small girl, because it seems that among other things, she likes technology and astronomy like I do!) Haha.

If you want an inexpensive Assistant with a 7" display like this one. Then just buy an inexpensive Android tablet and install and setup Google Assistant. If you want a really inexpensive Assistant for less than $20 right now. Then pick up the latest addition of the magpi magazine. That magazine #57 gives you a complete Cardboard version of Google Assistant made with a Raspberry PI. You can even buy a Raspberry PI zero with Bluetooth and WiFi for just $10.­ojects-kit-08-05-2017/

Still if Apple unveils even a less capable device it will sell like hot cake, like with the start watches. That's how dumb people are.

It's boring, almost ugly. Should've made it in the form of a pet.

Hey Amazon, the 1980s want their TVs back.
