    Mark Zuckerberg announced he was building an AI system for his own home called Jarvis back in January. After a year of coding, he’s ready to show it off.

    You can see Jarvis make Mark some toast, teach his daughter Mandarin, and even shoot him some clothes when he’s ready to get dressed (surprise, it’s a plain gray t-shirt).

    When Zuckerberg wakes up, Jarvis lets him now about his upcoming calendar events. And when he doesn’t feel like speaking, he can communicate with Jarvis via a Messenger bot as well.

    Also, Jarvis sounds a lot like Morgan Freeman – and it might actually be him – so that’s pretty awesome. Just watch the video:

    Of course, this is just a playful featurette, but for a full breakdown of what Jarvis can do and Zuckerberg’s coding process, check out his blog post here.

    Update: Priscilla Chan took a bit longer to warm up to Jarvis, it seems:

    Priscilla's experience with Jarvis has been a little different…This one is based on mishaps she endured while I built Jarvis.
