Prestige ColorPic lets you see what your walls would look like with a fresh coat of paint

Prestige ColorPic App Tutorial
You don’t have to just imagine what your walls would like with a new color of paint — you can actually see it. And not just in your mind’s eye either, but rather on your phone. It’s all possible with a new app from Prestige Paints called ColorPic. Promising to “forever change the process of choosing a paint color and buying interior and exterior paint,” this new app does away with those tiny little swatches that you can only see from about two feet away, as well as those baby paint buckets that require you to actually get out a paintbrush.

With the ColorPic app, Prestige Paints is giving folks the opportunity to check out how more than 2,400 paint colors would look on their walls in real time. To access this extensive palette, simply download the ColorPic app, which is available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, then photograph the room you’d like to repaint. Or, if you’re just looking for inspiration in general, you can choose a standard room from ColorPic’s preloaded gallery.

From there, you’ll be able to use the app’s color wheel to choose a new hue and place it directly onto the walls in your photo. The ColorPic app claims to re-create even the subtleties of your walls, including how shadows and lighting might affect how a color appears. And if you want the opinions of friends and family members (proceed with caution), you can share your colorful images on social media.

When it comes to decision time, you can order your paint directly through the app by way of Amazon, and get your buckets in just two days with Amazon Prime.

“The home paint industry has long been behind the wave of technology that has already revolutionized many other industries,” said Mark Becker, COO of Prestige Paints. Jeff Peterson, CRO of Prestige Paints, continued, “We are not tied to the demands of large home improvement stores or brand stores like all other top paint brands. Through our ColorPic app and consumer-centric approach, we are changing the way you buy paint by allowing the user to browse, pick, view, and purchase paint without ever leaving the comforts of home.”

At long last, Amazon brings AI features to Alexa
Amazon SVP of Devices and Services Dave Limp demonstrates the Let's Chat feature of Alexa, powered by AI.

Nearly a year after ChatGPT introduced the world to the uncannily human possibilities of generative AI, Amazon has unveiled new Alexa features powered by large language models (LLM). At the annual Amazon Devices Event hosted at its new Arlington, Virginia, headquarters, the company announced some major Alexa improvements that will attempt to make replies much more conversational and lifelike, with less waiting time between your interactions and more meaningful replies.

A new feature called Let's Chat mimics the ChatGPT experience by allowing you to have a fluid conversation with Alexa, asking questions about everything from the voice assistant's football team allegiance to recipes. You can even ask it to write emails for you. In the demo with Dave Limp, outgoing senior vice president of devices and services, Alexa sometimes stalled and needed a second prompt to answer questions, suggesting the feature may still need some polish.
