Daisy, Daisy, Give Me Your Answer Do. Is HAL-9000 The Next Virtual Assistant For Your Smart Home?
The sinister supercomputer from 2001: A Space Odyssey, HAL-9000, is now available built-in with Amazon’s Alexa. Master Replicas Group are planning to turn HAL into a virtual assistant for your smart home. This is not the first time someone has tried to get HAL into the home automation system.
HAL will make use of Amazon’s Echo technology to control and manage your house. It will use, as its base, a Fire HD table. Currently, the device is designed with lines from the movie which works with Alexa. The company is trying to get an approval from Amazon to try and convert the entire mechanism in HAL’s voice.
Pre-orders for the device will start in April with the shipping beginning in September. There are many numbered versions of the props, from 1 to 2001. The production of these has already started.
The company already sells a glorified screen saver that loops through a series of computer displays from the film, and will be releasing a mini-HAL keychain flash drive that lights up when plugged in. The company also has a license with the Smithsonian, and releases a range of art products, like posters and replica Lunar and Martian features.
