The Amazon Astro is a handy rolling robot that uses Alexa to attend to the many needs of a household. While constantly monitoring the home, Astro is also an entertainment system, a courier and retriever of items using its detachable cup holder, a deliverer of calls and reminders, and can offer remote peace of mind when the resident is away from the home.
Keep home closer – Meet Astro, the household robot for home monitoring, with Alexa. …Amazon Astro uses advanced navigation technology to find its way around your home and go where you need it. When you’re not using Astro, it will hang out close by at the ready.
