Amazon’s latest product is the Echo Look which has all of the voice activated features of the Amazon Echo, but now is equipped with a special camera to capture outfits. The camera is hands-free, has built-in LED lighting, has a depth-sensing capabilities, and is able to blur the background automatically. It can also take videos and it looks like it makes little Boomerang videos as well. Now you can ask Alexa what the weather will be and then have her take a selfie in whichever outfit she has decided looks best on you.

Amazon Echo Style Check
One of the more interesting features is the Style Check. According to Amazon Style Check “keeps your look on point using advanced machine learning algorithms and advice from fashion specialists.” You submit two photos then get a percentage of which outfit looks better. I have no clue how they can judge an outfit by an algorithm, but I find this very intriguing.
Amazon Echo Look Price
The price is $199.99, but you must request an invitation that has to be accepted before you can purchase. You can request the invitation and find out more about it here.
Who is the Amazon Echo Look for?
I think the Amazon Echo Look is best for anyone that loves fashion and takes a lot of photos of their outfits. It would be great for an indecisive person who needs help picking out what to wear. It could also help someone that has tons of clothes and wants to catalogue all of their outfits in their whole closet so they can scroll through their phone instead of having to look through a crowded closet. If you were thinking about buying the Amazon Echo anyway, I think the Echo Look is an even more fun and entertaining option!
