Amazon Astro vs. Other Home Robots

Amazon Astro was first introduced by the company last year, but as much as the e-commerce company worked on the robot, users complained that it breaks easily and felt “rushed.” The comments got to Amazon, and since then, there was less interest for the robot, and it swayed away from the public eye for its bad reviews.

There are a lot of home robots that bring assistance for people, and some of them are used for medical purposes, like the Toyota HSR or Human Support Robot. The device brings help to those who have physical incapacities that hinder them from doing normal functions, with the robot meant to provide the service where it is needed.

Heineken also released a “beer robot” that has a cooler mounted on its back and follows the user for a cold drink when needed.

Amazon Astro is a device that aims to bring assistance to the public and give people are a robot that will be available on-demand for home needs. The increased presence of the robot indicates that a lot of people are enjoying its use already, compared to its previous reviews.
