LOFT is a $49.95 portable battery base for the Google Home

Its maker, Ninety7 is back with two new devices not only for the Amazon Echo but also for Google Home.

Amazon is planning to release a pair of Alexa-enabled smartglasses as the latest addition to its range of voice-controlled devices, according to reports. It weighs 400g (14.1 ounces) and attaches magnetically to the Google Home so it should technically be a seamless transition from your current base.

This portable battery replaces the base on your Google Home, allowing you to use it tethered (with Google Home's existing power adapter) or cordless thanks to its 8 hours of battery life. After the VAUX, a clever battery-powered speaker dock for the Amazon Echo Dot comes LOFT, a way to turn Google Home into a portable assistant.

LOFT is a portable battery base for the Google Home that let's you unplug and take Google anywhere you choose.

First up is the Dox, which will sell for $39.95 (but is launching on sale for $29.95) and adds a rechargeable battery to the Dot that's supposed to let Amazon's tiny speaker run on its own for 10 hours.

Assuming the report is accurate, the Google Home Mini promises to offer similar features as Google's original smart speaker, from playing music to giving you the news to turning on your smart light bulbs, all in response to spoken commands. Ninety7 will start shipping the product this October. The introductory price of the Ninenty7 LOFT is also lower at $39.95 from the $49.95 retail price. I suspect some of that is because Google carefully hid the Home's size with a taper, whereas the Loft continues to flare outward.

"Amazon's secretive Lab 126 product development team has been given the task of studying the smart-home market to see what other devices might make sense for the company to build", the Financial Times report read. If yes, then will you be interested in buying LOFT for it?
