Based on a new Bloomberg report, Amazon is currently working on building home robots. The project is code named Vesta, which is currently part of the company’s Lab126 hardware research and development division.
There’s no info on exactly what tasks these robots would perform, although sources told the publication that you can think of them as mobile Alexa, capable of accompanying their owners to places in house where Echo devices aren’t usually kept.
Prototypes have already been developed, featuring stuff like advanced cameras and computer vision software. The company aims to have these robots in the home of its employees by this year end, and in consumers’ homes by next year.
