Amazon’s Home Robot Is Waist-High And Voice Controllable

Amazon’s home robot vesta

The reports suggest prototypes for the next-gen Amazon Echo already exist, and are said to be wider than the current model due to the inclusion of at least four tweeters. Both Vesta and this high-end Echo speaker are said to be in development at Lab126, Amazon's research and development house.

EMarketer predicts that Echo will win over approximately 63% of US market share this year (Google is at 31%). According to eMarketer, the device will capture 63 percent of the USA smart speaker market this year. Google commands 31% of the market.

As noted by CNBC, Amazon typically releases its biggest products in September at its Seattle headquarters.

In addition to a higher quality speaker with better audio Amazon is also said to be planning a release of a new version of its music streaming service that would offer high-fidelity music tracks to pair up with the new speaker that comes with better quality sound components.

To control the 'bot, users can reportedly use Alexa voice controls.

Entertainment Journalists to Boycott Kangana Ranaut, PTI Already Did
Others are of the view that the "Judgemental Hai Kya" diva has been targetted only because she is not a male actor. Entertainment journalists collectively made a decision to boycott Ms Ranaut and not give her any media coverage.

A prototype of the robot, codenamed "Vesta", is about "waist-high", can be controlled by voice and is capable of moving around on its own using built-in cameras, according to the report.

Bloomberg says it was scheduled to launch this year, but it is not ready for mass production yet. Vesta is described as possibly being a mobile Alexa gadget, in that it could follow people to corners of their homes where there may not already be an Echo device.

Amazon is supposedly taking a shot at a higher-quality rendition of its mainstream Alexa-based Echo brilliant speaker to legitimately compete Apple's HomePod and other excellent savvy speakers. The news outlet also claims that Amazon has pulled engineers from other projects to work on Vesta. Previous year its nifty One speaker added Alexa compatibility. "In an internal demonstration, an engineer summoned the machine with his voice", Bloomberg reports. While Amazon could pick never to discharge the robot, as of late it has dismantled designers from different undertakings to chip away at it - a sign the organization intends to sell Vesta sooner or later.

Could that monstrosity (reportedly made by his children) have been the inspiration for an Alexa-powered home robot?
