Well, as the name suggests, this is a smart alarm clock and apart from waking you up in the morning or offering reminders, it can perform some other pretty tasks as well.
So let me introduce you to this Xiaomi XiaoAi Smart Alarm Clock, with its look and feel and how well it can be a part of your daily regime:

The top of the alarm clock has a button which is used to switch off the alarm and can also be used to trigger the virtual assistant.
The smart alarm clock is powered by a MediaTek processor which is clocked at 1.3Ghz and is quad-core in nature. No doubt, this is the thing that powers the speed of virtual assistant and also takes care of the display.

The AI feature in the speaker is equipped to listen to your voice and using your voice, you can set as many as 30 different alarms.
