Nucleus is an Alexa-enabled video intercom that works in your home or halfway around the world

Imagine being able to see and talk to anyone in your house from your home office or bedroom without having to move an inch. Imagine being able to see and talk to anyone anywhere in the world the exact same way. Now, imagine being able to do all that with a device that also puts all the power of Amazon’s virtual personal assistant Alexa at your fingertips. The Nucleus Anywhere Intercom with Amazon Alexa is one of the coolest Alexa-enabled products we’ve come across. And despite all of the unique, awesome features it offers, it only costs about $48 more than the Amazon Echo, which offers Alexa functionality and nothing else.

Here’s a video of the Nucleus in action:
