Just when we were really warming up to Siri again (we admit the
commentary was pretty endearing), there’s a new voice assistant hitting the market soon that might have us uttering “Siri, who?” in no time. According to Business Insider
, at techie trade show CES, which kicked off January 7, Intel revealed a computerized contraption that rivals Apple and Google’s assistants alike with hands-free and human-like conversational capabilities.
Jarvis (yes, named after Iron Man
’s digital buddy) is a headset that boasts the ability to chat and navigate your phone solely using vocal direction (woo-hoo, you don’t have to push any buttons!). It also can interrupt you when it believes it has pertinent info to share and — kind of trippy — but is always listening. How’s that for snazzy, er, or scary depending on how you look at it?
