There are two things I’d like to tell you about CES 2019.

One: Google had a roller coaster at its booth.

Two: Support for Amazon Alexa is being built into pretty much every gadget you can think of.

There’s a reason for a lot of new products. Last year, Amazon announced tools that make it even easier for anyone to add Alexa into their gadgets, and Amazon’s Alexa-ready microwave was a pretty good proof of that concept.

I walked around the show floor this week and found a bunch of products with either Alexa in them, which means you can talk directly to them, or support for Alexa, which means you can control them with an Amazon Echo. Some of the devices are new, while others were announced in the last year but seemed to have flown under the radar.

Here are some of the silliest or most convenient — depending on your perspective — places you can now find support for Amazon Alexa.
