Amazon echo

This nine-inch tall speaker is a total power house. The new Echo from Amazon connects wirelessly to the cloud and is completely voice-activated (think: Siri, but for your home). In addition to playing your favorite music from Amazon Prime, Pandora and iHeartRadio, the Echo can provide you with the day's weather, traffic and even the top news headlines. It can set a timer for your roast chicken, tell you who won last's night's baseball game or add something to your wedding to-do list or google calendar. How awesome is that? The Echo is available for pre-order now and will ship on July 14, 2015. Add it to your wedding registry and prepare to become obsessed.

Echo, $180, Amazon.com
