Amazon talked about it for years and they finally made it happen.



No way in hell I'm getting one. Same reason I never got Alexa nor any of Amazons other home security. they spy on you and use your personal private info to make more sales. I do not like it. Especially when they abuse their human employees so badly every day.

Will it go 'round in circles?

Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky?

But most importantly of all, will it have boobs?

"Astro is terrible and will almost certainly throw itself down a flight of stairs if presented the opportunity. The person detection is unreliable at best, making the in-home security proposition laughable," a source who worked on the project said.
At least it doesn't have a gun.

yeay, a roaming microphone linked to the cloud. Maybe if you're away on vacation, it'd be useful. Otherwise should be stowed in a box in the attic, or garage to minimize surveillance.
