For the past two weeks, Amazon's lovely little Astro robot has been scurrying around my apartment.

It doesn't have arms to scratch its own confused head, but I'm prepared to do it for him.

The robot is a $1,000 invitation-only programme with limited quantities of robots available as part of Amazon's Day 1 Editions initiative, as the corporation tries to get them into consumers' hands with a question: How would you utilise this?

Home monitoring — an autonomous home-security system that can walk from room to room, according to the business — is one of the possible applications.

With Ring Protect Pro, Astro can roam a home, pop its periscope camera to see the counters, recognise unidentifiable persons even in "away mode," issue alarms when it hears glass shattering, and more.

You can also use it at home: if you hear the dog barking late at night, you may send Astro to investigate without having to leave your duvet-burrito cocoon.

Astro, according to the business, could be an excellent option for providing remote treatment. 

To stay in touch, your loved one can ask Astro to arrange and deliver reminders, or you can use Drop In.
