The American company Amazon has developed a robot for the home named Astro, TASS reported.
As noted in Amazon, the home robot can be used for video surveillance and security control in a residential area. Astro will be able to independently move around the house, check certain rooms upon request, and even send alerts when strangers appear.
In the specially developed Astro App, the owners of the robot will be able to watch video broadcasts from the premises of the house. The robot assistant can perform many other functions, such as following the owner and playing music, taking family pictures and sending reminders.
According to Trichler, Astro developers took inspiration from movies, talk shows and games to create what they call a robot personality.
Astro has digital eyes on a rotating screen and uses movement and expressive tone to communicate.
The starting price of a home robot will be about $ 1,000, subsequently the company intends to increase it to $ 1,500. The device will be produced in limited quantities, sales will begin in 2021.
