See if Alexa can read your mind...

Just say "Alexa, play Akinator!"

Think of a real or fictional character and then answer the Akinator's questions. "Does your character have dark hair?" Or even "Does your character have legs?" As you'll soon find out, the Akinator genie can truly read your mind and guess your character :)

He's guessed so many that I've thought of -- from Roger Federer to Rachel from Friends to Lady Gaga. Time after time, I'm delighted (and slightly surprised) when he gets it right.

Do This Tonight: Akinator is the perfect light and fun game to play while you're washing up after dinner or waiting for the pasta water to boil. It has become one of my go-to's when I want a few minutes of entertainment, and I'm not alone -- it's got 10,000+ reviews and 4.5 stars!

4 essential pro tips for playing Akinator:

  1. In addition to "yes" and "no," you can answer "I don't know" -- You can also answer "maybe" and "maybe not"
  2. Pick a character you really know about -- If you answer any questions incorrectly, Akinator won't be able to guess your character. Remember you can always say "I don't know"
  3. If you realize you answered the last question incorrectly -- Just say "go back" and you'll be able to re-do it
  4. If Akinator guesses your character, but he's wrong -- Just say "no" when he asks if he's right. He'll continue with the questions and then guess again!

"Alexa, turn on the shower!"

Alexa-connected smart devices are coming to the bathroom sooner than you might think -- from voice-activated mirrors to aromatherapy shower heads!

These cutting-edge voice-activated bathroom devices are not cheap, but it's still fun to read about them and imagine what our bathrooms might look like one day as future (and less expensive!) versions come to market.
