Welcome to the age where science fiction is becoming science fact. Not too long ago, we fantasized about a life where robots lived in our homes and helped us with our daily chores. This is no longer a fantasy but a reality, thanks to Amazon Astro.
Amazon Astro is a little household robot that uses advanced navigation to go around your house to complete automated or instructed tasks. With the help of Amazon Alexa’s high-tech speech recognition, you can simply just talk to the robot to order it to obey your commands.
This handy robot is not just a toy as you would think it is. It has some entertainment value, such as playing music, showing videos on its screen, and conversing and answering questions. But it has other essential functions too, such as keeping you safe.
Astro has cameras that are used to spot unwanted visitors in your house. When you are not there, it will automatically detect intruders and notify you via phone. You would also be able to inspect your home from any location using your phone and the robot’s cameras.
The robot can raise an actual loud alarm on your command if an intruder or unwanted animal is detected. Everything that you usually would do with voice commands could be done remotely via your phone.
Now that you found out about its cameras, you might be concerned about privacy. Don’t worry; whenever you need to, you can deactivate all microphones, cameras, and movement with the press of a single button. After deactivation, you wouldn’t have to worry about Astro accidentally rolling in while in the bathroom.
Set reminders, set alarms, ask it to bring phone calls or video calls to you, and even deliver or send items around the house using its built-in tray. This little robot could protect you, make your life easier, and bring joy around the house. Watch the feel-good advertisement of this product, and you will see that it is impossible not to fall in love with Astro right away.
