2. Speakers

Much smaller than smart fridges, but even more useful, are smart speakers. These can play music for you, search the internet to answer your questions, even control the lights and other elements of your smart house. Amazon Echo (Second Gen) is definitely a good option for this. It can read the news, set alarms, play audio books and so much more.
