It's finally here.
On Tuesday, pre-orders opened for a Big Mouth Billy Bass that connects to Amazon's voice assistant, Alexa.
Once the plastic fish is hooked up to an Amazon echo, he can respond to Alexa's voice commands, dance to the beat of Amazon Music songs, and even sync his hairy lips with Alexa's words.
As it supports Alexa commands, you can query the fish on the weather, news or random facts. This is officially an "Alexa gadget", an Amazon certification.
It costs $ 40 on – where else – Amazon.com.
"This is not your father's big mouth Billy Bass," said Steven Harris, vice president of product development at Gemmy Industries, the parent company of Big Mouth mouth Billy Bass, in a statement.
The original Big Mouth Billy Bass was sold for the first time in 1999 and plays short songs like "Do not Worry, Be Happy". Since then, it's a kitsch favorite in dens and recreation rooms. This version also incorporates the original song "Fishin & # 39; Time".
Amazon announced last year the Big Mouth Billy Bass compatible Alexa.
