Amazon announced its latest slate of new products this morning, and guess what? THERE’S A ROBOT.
Amazon closed up its fall product release today with some fancy gadgets to kick off the 2021 holiday season. Among the gadgets announced include a smart thermostat, the Echo Show 15, a new partnership with Disney, Amazon Glow, a fitness tracker, the Ring security drone, annnd… Astro, Amazon’s new home robot.
Astro the Robot moves independently, has eyes and a body, and features Alex’s voice assistant capabilities to control smart home devices — it even acts as a guard dog (or should we say, a guard bot?)
Amazon’s robot costs $999.99, but its official release date has yet to be announced. Check out the full list of Amazon’s latest products here.
