Amazon is selling a Jarvis unit called Echo

Not exactly Jarvis it just reminds me of Jarvis from the Iron Man films
edit: its actually called Echo but the Amazon commercials family named theirs Alexa

It's a cylinder that's connected to the internet and you can talk to it


for $199, and $99 to invited Prime members

http://www.amazon.com/oc/echo/ref_=ods_dp_ae


Amazon just surprised everyone with a crazy speaker that talks to you | The Verge

I think it's gonna flop like their fire phone.

I loled at a theory I read that the echo is just recycled fire phone parts to dwindle their huge inventory of unsold units.

$200 is too high of a price point plus you need multiple units in a house. It would would be awesome if you could link them together, so if you play a song on one it would play the song on all of them. Also if you could sent voice messages each individual unit. You could sent a message to a unit in one of your kids rooms or a message to all the units. Even better if you could chat with other people using the unit.

It's quite a bit more, and it's not really the quasi automation like this, but I'm quite impressed with the "Sonos" system

We use them in some of our sales centers/show homes and between 4 different units, 3 different floors and 6 speakers it's seemlessly synced to one iPod in the office

I really hope I get selected because for the $99 price tag it's so worth it just to mess around with it for a bit. I would so call it Jarvis as well lol
