Toyota suggests a number of ways users could use Alexa in the vehicle, such as for taking notes and setting reminders, activating apps, or for controlling other smart devices, such as the heating and cooling on your house.

In addition to being integrated with Windows 10 PCs from HP, Lenovo, Asus and Acer; Alexa also will power two Kohler toilets, a new bathroom mirror and other products from the new Kohler Konnect line, according to TechCrunch.

Japanese electronics company Panasonic has been working with both Amazon and Google to bring their respective virtual assistants to in-car infotainment systems. "However, as we increasingly engage with more virtual assistants in our home, at work, in the vehicle - and everything in between - a cognitive arbitrator will ultimately be needed to connect the diverse virtual assistants, third-party services and content, and intelligent agents through an interoperable interface".

Luigi's Balloon World is an online component featuring 2 different competitive modes: " Hide It Mode" and " Find It Mode". It looks pretty cute, and it'll be free so I'm sure players will get their fill or at least have some fun with it.

Alexa is Amazon's intelligent virtual assistant, similar to Siri or Cortana, which can interact with users via voice, make lists, set alarms, provide news and weather information, as well as control smart devices connected via the internet. Furthermore, past year in November Amazon announced a suite of voice-activated work tools to allow you to bring Alexa to the office. C'mon, you knew it was coming eventually. While Alexa integration could be found all over the CES show floor, Google Assistant made a big CES splash, too.

The CES technology show in Las Vegas is seemingly all robots, drones and smart gadgets.
