What is Astro?

Astro, about the size of a small dog, roams the house on three wheels, including two large wheels that prevent him from tripping and a smaller one that turns. It also has a camera that rises on a 42-inch arm that can monitor the house while it is on patrol.

The robot can follow you and play music or TV shows on its 10-inch touch screen. He has a facial recognition tool, which allows him to deliver drinks to family members.



Astro cameras are also used for home security or video chatting, and you can talk to him for weather or sports news via the Alexa assistant built into him. And you can play movies or TV shows as you would an Amazon tablet or Fire TV.

The robot comes with an app on the phone that you can control remotely, which is useful if you want to monitor a loved one who lives alone, such as an elderly family member.

Amazon will partner with third parties to offer tools such as the Astro blood pressure unit.
