HP first announced earlier this month that it would be building a Cortana speaker just days after the Harmon Kardon Invoke was shown off. At the time, the concept was very under wraps, but at today’s keynote address at the Computex conference, Microsoft unveiled some artist renders of the device.

Microsoft’s party line at the conference was getting Cortana everywhere across a network of connected devices.
