It has a detachable camera that can be lifted up to see high places through a periscope. You can use it for house patrol, investigating and reporting accidents. You can also use it to search for someone to make a video conference call.
Madrid (Portaltic/EP). Amazon announced Tuesday new features for its catalogue of proprietary devices. The new Astro home robot can automatically patrol your house and is equipped to carry out video calls with your child. It also has periscopes, cameras and screens.
Amazon’s new device is based upon the concept of “environmental Intelligence”, which is artificial intelligence that assists users in the background.
Amazon’s new robot Astro works with Alexa. This robot is computerized and can be programmed to care for pets or family members.
Amazon Astro includes a detachable camera with periscope that can be raised in order to view higher places. You can use it for home surveillance and investigation, as well as to report accidents. You can use the screen to search for someone to initiate a video conference.
This device has a custom version that Alexa makes. It moves on three wheels so it can respond differently to voice commands like “beatbox” or “rest” Respond.
Amazon claims that the new Amazon Astro robot can autonomously navigate the house and map its surroundings, as well as avoid obstacles.
Amazon admitted that he was inspired by science fiction when designing this robot. He hopes to be in a position to deliver the robot to all homes. He hopes this robot will become a standard and not just his first.
Astro will be part of the first-day experimental product plan. It will launch later in the year at a cost of $999.99.
Echo Show 15
The Echo series of devices evolved with the development of the new Echo Show 15, which is a 15.6-inch screen that can be placed vertically or horizontally in the home, aiming to become a “smarter kitchen TV.”
Echo Show 15 features a new interface. It can display the calendar in different ways depending on which family member they are viewing it. You can also access music and videos via “streaming” with the new Alexa widget.
You can ask Alexa to change your wallpaper by using voice commands. Echo Show 15 features a new generation AZ2 neural processor that is up to 10x faster than the predecessor generation and supports visual computing tasks.
The Visual ID function is the most notable. Alexa recognizes each user to personalize the device experience. Amazon stresses the safety of this process and does it on the device.
The Alexa assistant now offers a custom sound function that allows each user to personalize the home sound. For example, the Echo Show 15 can recognize the sound of the refrigerator and program routines.
Amazon will offer the Echo Show 15 smart monitor for $249.99.
Echo users will have access to the privacy features. They will be allowed to view their recordings but not the company.
These privacy features are available to Echo speakers users.
