Amazon’s Echo Look is a $200 hands-free camera doubles as a speaker and can run the famous Amazon’s voice-controlled assistant, Alexa.
You can ask for it about the weather, set timers, play music and do whatever things you want to do with Alexa in another Echo device, BUT what makes the Echo Look special are the multiple cameras.
Echo Look cameras can help you look your best before you head out the door. The main feature, which you can operate using just your voice, is to take full-length photos and short videos of yourself. It has a built-in LED lighting, depth sensing, and computer vision blur effect to blur out your background, making your outfits stand out, and even arranging all of your outfits into a lookbook on the app.
The Echo Look app can let you see yourself in every angle. You can view photos and videos of your outfit, select the best and share it with your friends on social media. You can also check new brands and styles and can see what color you wear often.
How useful this whole experience will be depends on who you are. I run a fashion blog, so the Echo Look is a no-brainer for me and also I think it provides a great experience for other style conscious users, but if you're not in the fashion set, then this is a high-priced Alex option you can easily skip.

Echo Look Style Check
Amazon is really investing in technology to help you pick out which outfit is the best, even breaking it down within subtle differences, ie the same pants and shirt but a different jacket. How are they doing this? Not quite sure, but here are the elements they analyze.
- Color: They analyze which outfit has a better color combination
