Rumored Amazon robot is the Alexa evolution we're not sure we want

Amazon's top-secret “Vesta” program is for building home robots

Alexa may be getting some legs.

Just four years after kicking off the smart speaker craze with the Echo, Amazon is reportedly building robots for the home as its next major venture.

The report doesn't have many details about the robots themselves, but sources speculate that the Vesta could be a "mobile Alexa", moving with owners through their home and assisting them when an Echo device isn't within earshot. Vesta's current prototypes include robots with advanced cameras and computer-vision software that help it navigate through homes.

It's not a awful idea, though if it's just an Alexa-powered mobile speaker, it may not give enough reason for customers to care beyond the early-adopter thrill of owning a domestic robot.

Home robots are a longtime focus of Japanese and Korean robot companies.

New rumors today claim that Amazon is looking to launch something technophiles have dreamed about for decades: a consumer robot for the home. That company continues to develop impressive animal-like robots, but it hasn't really produced anything other than occasional videos that terrify the internet.

He also talked about the government's Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao Abhiyan that now girls should be saved from MLAs and MPs of BJP. Rahul dared PM Modi by saying that if he is allowed to speak for 15 minutes in Parliament, the Prime Minister will run away.

The company has a robotics division that builds the industrial machines that do automated work in its warehouses, but this project is being overseen by Gregg Zehr, president of Amazon's Lab126.

Amazon's robots could be in employee homes by year's end and available to consumers as early as next year, Bloomberg said.
