Trilby looks very cool, and it’s real – – you can order it for delivery tomorrow. I like the smart phone integration, although I can’t quite tell how much of that is actually hands-free.
It’s an authorized use of the Alexa voice service, not a skill, so you can say “Alexa, set a timer for 10 minutes” and it will work fine.
Something strange, though, Home automation devices, but it also does not integrate with the Hue bridge. Not sure what’s going on there, or how well it would integrate with smartthings. I like the form factor in the fact that it has a magnet intended to stick on a refrigerator.
I may check it out to see how it handles phone calls, which are still a big issue for me.
Update checked in with my wheelchair users group and a couple of people have tried it. First, it only works with iOS devices, which is OK for the Wheelchair users group because we almost all have iOS devices anyway. Second, though, it’s not hands-free – – when a call comes in then you have to push that big yellow button on the side of the trilby. So OK for some people, not others. Third, the doodle notes are cute, but they overwrite each other so you can’t use it for anything important because you might lose messages. So I guess I’ll pass for now.
