Mycroft Mark 1

Review Date 11/01/18

This is not your average smart speaker. Not by a long shot. This smart speaker is 100% open source, meaning it is designed to be altered, modified, remixed, and improved any way you like. And even if you don't have the technical know-how to hack your smart speaker, the Mycroft Mark 1 is still your friend. The good folks at Mycroft place a high premium on privacy, security, and being good in the world. Go check them out!
