Mark II

$299.00

The Mark II is a state-of-the-art, privacy-respecting smart speaker designed for you and your family, from kids to grandparents. At the same time, it is open hardware and software for developers and makers.

The Mark II provides a great voice experience without sacrificing privacy. Mycroft never collects any data from you unless you ask us to (opt-in rather than opt-out). The Mark II can even run without an internet connection. 1

With active noise cancellation, a bright full-color touch-screen and 10W of room-filling audio, the Mark II can go head-to-head with other high-end smart speakers offered by the big-tech companies.
