Amazon has revealed a new camera-equipped home robot that can patrol homes and investigate activity on your orders in a move that the billion-dollar tech giant is calling “a breakthrough for security and convenience.”

The “Astro” robot as Amazon calls it is roughly 60cm tall and weighs around 9kgs. The motorised device can map out the floor plan and layout of your home and obey commands to go to a specific place to take a closer look using its telescoping camera.

“Now when you are away, you can use it to proactively patrol your home and investigate the activity,” Amazon executive Dave Limp said in a product launch clip, quoted by Media24.
