VINCI SMART HEADPHONES

Our relationship with voice-operated technology has been a bit rocky. It tends to be defined by frustrating exchanges that end with the gadget saying, “I didn’t catch that” and you hurling it into a skip. However, Amazon’s Alexa has become a global hit, and as a result we’re more open to the idea of asking disembodied voices for music selections. Vinci is an attempt to ride that wave; it’s an all-in-one headphone and smart assistant. Reviews indicate a few teething troubles, but it’s a shape of things to come.
