Amazon Astro Robot Alexa New Preorder
The Astro is more or less Alexa on wheels; everything that you can do with, say, the Amazon Echo Show 10, you'll be able to do on the Astro, such as listening to music, playing movies, looking up recipes and more. Not surprisingly, the Astro works with Drop-In, so you can chat with friends and family on video calls. The robot will even follow you around during chats.
You'll also be able to motor the Astro around your house using an app on your phone, so you can remotely check in on things while you're away. You can also set the Astro to patrol your home at night, or when you're not at home. It can even send you an alert if if sees someone it doesn't recognize.
As with the new Amazon Echo Show 15, the Astro has Visual ID, so you can train it to recognize specific family members. The data is stored on the robot, rather than in the cloud.
Astro owners can set out-of-bounds areas they don't want the robot to go into, and a physical button for the microphone and cameras can disable those devices.
