If you like Googling stuff, playing music and setting reminders but hate using your fingers then this Amazon Prime Day Echo Dot deal is for you. It's more than half price at just £22 saving you £28 (56%) in total. You can access your calendars, control Spotify and much more - all by using the power of your voice alone. Alexa works with a bunch of gaming TVs too, acting as voice control for your favourite TV shows etc, so it's something that could quickly become part of your entertainment life. And it's only £22 during the Amazon Prime Day deals.
However, the money saving technological march to the future doesn't stop there. If you really want a smart smart home you can pick up an Amazon Echo Dot with a Smart Plug for £31.99, saving £42.99 in the process. Whatever you use with the plug can then be controlled by speaking to Alexa and asking it to turn the device on and off. You can even control it via a timer, or simply by whether you're home or not. Probably not a good idea for a fridge but great for lamps.
