The Fire TV Cube is available for preorder today starting at $119 ($89 for Prime Members on June 7 and 8 only) and comes bundled with an ethernet adapter and an IR extender cable. It isn't going to replace a Logitech Harmony remote just yet, but we can see it being useful in a lot of setups right off the bat.
What differentiates the Fire TV Cube from its predecessors-aside from its unique cube shape-is that it's truly a hybrid device. With Echo Look, you can take full-length photos of your daily look using just your voice.
Amazon says Fire TV Cube enables hands-free TV controls using infrared technology, cloud protocols and a feature of HDMI cables designed for controlling consumer electronics devices. From across the room, just ask Alexa to turn on the TV, dim the lights, and play what you want to watch.

And outside of traditional playback and voice control, the Fire TV Cube also includes a built-in speaker allowing users to check the weather, listen to the news, control compatible smart home devices, and more.
It all sounds rather ambitious, but at launch (which is due for June 21st in the U.S. with a United Kingdom release yet to be announced) the functionality will be more limited, restricting Alexa to more modest controls like volume and input selection.
