Amazon Vesta .. The secret home robot is on its way to production.

 


Amazon appears to have reached the final prototype stage of creating its secret home robot, the codename Vesta, according to a new report by Business Insider.

The device has been under development for nearly four years and is now staffed by more than 800 employees, the report says.

If android is launched, it will be one of Amazon's biggest and most ambitious new products, such as Echo, Kindle, and Fire Phone.

Comparisons with Fire Phone, Amazon's failed smartphone project, seem to worry some of the vesta's developers.

As with any device not known for this measurement, there are many unanswered questions and uncertain details.

However, the basic premise is that Vesta will act as an audio tonic assistant that can navigate your home, respond to your orders, and interact with other smart home devices.

The report contains a number of interesting details, including the suggestion that the device is between 25 and 33 centimeters in size.

The robot is reportedly equipped with a screen, microphone, and several cameras, and additional features can include temperature, humidity, and air quality sensors with a small compartment to carry objects and a retractable waist-high column with a camera, which can be combined with automated vision technology to help users find items, such as keys and wallets.

Vesta's project demonstrates Amazon's continued drive to include its products in customer homes.

Over the years, the company has launched a number of devices that are trying to expand access to discontinued kitchens and bedrooms, from the stopped Dash Wand, which allowed users to order grocery products by scanning barcodes, to Always Home Cam, a small marching aircraft that provides mobile surveillance around the house.

The report says Amazon is developing Vesta as a top priority, but initial sales expectations are modest, with Android initially launched as a limited-invitation-only product, as it did with the Halo fitness device.

This method can prevent a company from wasting resources on unsold inventory.
