The Pixel smartphones weren’t the only thing Google announced at its I/O conference. This is the Google Nest Hub Max smart display, which combines bits of other products it offers, smooshes them together and gives you a smarthome-themed display to control your home.

The 10-inch display comes with a 6.5-megapixel camera, a stereo speaker and Google Assistant, making it a rival to the Amazon Echo Show, just with added camera firepower. Sadly, it’s not currently available in Ireland, though who knows what plans Google has?
