There are many things I can tell you about Otterbox’s new stand for the third-generation Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker. I can tell you about its “durable” materials or how it is designed to “properly hold” your Echo device. Amazon’s listing even states that the basis of “non-slip precision” is “engineering for optimal audio output.”
But you and I both know that none of this really matters, because what’s really important here is that this base adds a few tiny ears for an Emmy-nominated Baby Yoda * to the sides of your Echo Dot . If you want to pretend that you are actually talking to her The Mandalorian character every time you ask Alexa to set a timer, then this is (probably) the easiest way to do it.
The stand is made by Otterbox, a company best known for its smartphone cases, but which has also released a number of interesting gadget accessories over the years. There are the stackable wireless chargers that were announced last year, or the phone cases that came with the PopGacks integrated into the PopSockets style.
OtterBox’s Baby Yoda Amazon Echo stand is available to pre-order on Amazon now, with an expected release on August 20, for $ 24.95. For those keeping track, that’s just under half the cost of the Amazon Echo Dot itself. The stand is only meant to work with a third-generation smart speaker.
* Yes, I know the character is technically called “The Boy” but please, I encourage you, live a little.
