  • - Hey everybody I'm here again at Amazon's Hardware Event,

  • and I have on my finger this big, ol' thing here

  • which is the Amazon Echo Loop.

  • It is Alexa in a little, tiny, ring on your finger.

  • And if you look at it here it's titanium,

  • it has a brushed, diamond-like finish on it.

  • I think it looks okay,

  • but I also have a wedding ring that's brushed metal,

  • so there you go.

  • It's sort of like a really nerdy, class ring

  • if you think about it.

  • Now, this looks pretty big,

  • but it's actually the extra large size.

  • It also comes in large, medium, and small,

  • and they will send you some plastic demo rings

  • to see if it fits you.

  • All that aside, the point is that this is Alexa.

  • And the way it works is

  • there's a little button on the inside,

  • and when you tap it, you feel a little vibration

  • that tells you that Alexa's listening

  • and you ask it a question.

  • And then you hold it up to your ear,

  • and she speaks back to you.

  • And to use it, you really kind of want to be like

  • (mumbles)

  • and then you listen to it.

  • It's not like you got it down here and you just talk to it.

  • It really is sort of like whispering to Alexa.

  • This thing can do a few other things.

  • You can set a favorite contact in the app

  • and if you double tap the button,

  • it will actually call it and you take the call on your ring.

  • I think that Alexa sounds a little bit tin-y on this ring,

  • so I wouldn't recommend having a long call on this ring.

  • Probably wouldn't recommend having a long call either

  • because we don't know if the battery would stand up

  • to something super long.

  • Amazon says that it lasts about a day

  • with intermittent use throughout the day,

  • but if you were just taking a long call

  • it would probably die eventually.

  • The ring will also give you notifications,

  • and you know it's going to all over,

  • it'll just be a vibration,

  • you can't customize the vibration per notification,

  • but at least you'll know you got something,

  • you can go look at your phone.

  • It cost $179.99 eventually,

  • but it has a launch price of $129.99,

  • but it's only available in limited quantities.

  • Hey everybody so much for watching.

  • Are you interested in a ring that has Alexa on it

  • that you can whisper secrets to your tiny, little, robot?

  • Let me know in the comments,

  • and also keep an eye for lots more videos from The Verge

  • at the same time.
