There is a pretty popular argument out there that technology – meaning everything from television to our smartest smartphones – is really just draining our willingness to interact with one another on a personal basis. One of the best counteragents to that may in fact be the Amazon Echo Buttons.
These wireless devices are essentially Amazon’s version of game controllers. They’re designed to be used in conjunction with a series of upcoming virtual board-games (think group trivia) that will be available via Amazon’s various Echo devices. The simple mechanics of the buttons will make them easy and intuitive to use for everyone from small children to adults. They’ll be available in packs of two starting later this year.
