Sometimes technology can get downright creepy. I’m talking Black Mirror creepy. The problem with speakers that are always listening, so you can’t be sure what could trigger it, which can result in some pretty creepy situations.
According to one report, Shawn Kinnear, 30, says that out of the blue, his Amazon Echo device suddenly said the words, “All I see is people dying”. According to Kinnear, Alexa was in the living room. “I had Amazon Prime on TV but it was paused. An Amazon Echo, similar to the one which declared that it was seeing dead people. I walked back in from the kitchen and she made her statement. It was a long statement so I listened then was like, WTF, it said nothing else. I then asked Alexa to repeat the statement and she said she did not understand.”
Wow. That’s scary stuff. Amazon has yet to respond to what might have caused Alexa to say those words, but some are speculating that Alexa could simply be saying the title of the song, “Everytime I Close My Eyes (All I See is People Dying)” by Digital Reality. Either Kinnear or someone else in their home might have accidentally said it to get Alexa to repeat it.
