Amazon Astro: a smart home robot

From the last Amazon event we meet Astro!

Astro brings a big 10.1in HD screen, mics, speakers and a periscope camera, you can interact with him directly or control remotely to watch your cat, your dog or your empty home.

It has also a charging dock station to automatically recharge his battery … so basically an Alexa on wheels, or an Alexa on a vacuum robot.

What do you think about Astro? Just a new, expensive toy … or a new friend for our smart home?
