Astro the house robot has been announced by Amazon
Amazon recently announced the launch of a home robot that will provide you with information when you're not at home. It will also help you to keep a check on your pets, people, or home security remotely. It may also autonomously patrol a home and notify the owners if it detects something suspicious. It was more than "Alexa on wheels," according to Amazon, and was programmed with a variety of gestures and expressions to give it personality.
The little robot also has a pop-up "periscope" camera on its head that can be extended. Amazon demonstrated how to utilize it to see if a gas stove was left on after leaving the house. The $999.99 (£740) robot, according to the technology and retail behemoth, could be of assistance to the elderly. The Amazon Glow, a video-calling device with the capacity to project an interactive "touchscreen" on the floor or table in front of it, was one of the other items presented at the event.
