Amazon pushes Star Trek future with new Alexa wake word

Amazon’s Alexa platform continues to be the go-to voice assistant not just for the home, but also vehicles. But it looks like the online-retailer’s helper in a cylinder was just given its greatest feature ever: The wake word "computer." That’s right, you can now pretend you’re in the Star Trek universe.

The new wake word joins, "Amazon," "Alexa" and "Echo" as things you can yell at the Alexa platform in order to get it to listen to you. Just don’t expect the device to help you locate dilithium crystals to get your starship to travel faster than light.
