Intel has announced a deal with Amazon to combine its hardware with the Alexa voice service in a kit designed to help developers create new Alexa-enabled smart home products with speech recognition capabilities. The Intel Voice Enablement Developer Kit is based on a new architecture that "delivers high-quality far-field voice even in the most acoustically challenging environments," said Intel's Smart Home Group general manager in a statement. The development kit is available for pre-order for USD 399 and will eventually retail for USD 499.
