Amazonian astro robot

Amazon


Meet Astro – Alexa, but on wheels.

Amazon’s new robot would definitely be an awesome gift to give – if you can get an invite, of course. The first trial of this rolling home help is available by invitation only. But what does Astro do? The robot can alert you if it detects certain sounds or an unrecognized person in your home. And because this little guy can roam your house, he also lets you check different rooms, from anywhere, with just one device. Full Disclosure: Astro can’t climb the stairs.

Soon Astro robots will come with a subscription to a new program called Alexa Together, which allows you to care for aging parents while allowing them to live independently. With Alexa Together, you’ll soon be able to set up reminders, manage shopping lists, receive activity alerts and more.

For privacy hawks, the Omni also has a manual switch below the display that lets you turn off the microphone.
