Not sure what to wear? Amazon.com can help

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) just unveiled its newest connected speaker device, and this one not only includes a camera, but is created to reside in your closet.

A dedicated companion app lets you see yourself from every angle, while Style Check can use a combination of machine learning and advice from fashionistas to let you know which outfit looks best. Always getting smarter Ask Alexa to read the news and audiobooks, set alarms, get traffic and weather updates, control smart home devices, play music, and more.

In the U.S. the Amazon Echo costs $199.99, meaning its $20 more expensive than the standard Echo.

While the Echo Look version gives you a percentage rating of your outfits based on the aforementioned expert opinions, Outfit Compare picks which outfit of two it prefers. You're supposed to connect it to a small tripod on your dresser or nightstand (or mount it to the wall) so that its depth-sensing camera and built-in LEDs have a clear view of your entire body.

Amazon has introduced the Echo Look, the new Alexa-powered at-home wardrobe assistant, which draws us closer to total dependence on technology and decision making. Amazon said it will continue to add more skills to its latest Echo device. Otherwise, Echo Look functions like any other Echo device. Style Check allows you to select multiple photos and have it use interweb smarts to work out which is best for you based on current trends and what flatters you most. Amazon is taking requests (here) from those who want an invite to buy it. Keep in mind, there is a precedence for this - the original Echo was an invite-only affair too.

The Echo Look will retail at $199.99 (£155.81) when it launches, but you have to register now in the hopes of receiving an invitation from Amazon to purchase the device.
