The French company Archos introduced a home assistant Archos Hello.

The gadget can find information on the Internet by voice request, include video, connect to other devices of the "smart" home and serve as a kind of control panel for them. In addition, the news synchronizes with the services of Google Music, Spotify and YouTube, and act as a music and video player.
