Amazon Vesta ... the secret home robot on the way to production

The report says: The device has been under development for nearly four years, and more than 800 employees are now working on it.

And if Android does launch, it will be one of Amazon's biggest and most ambitious new products, such as Echo, Kindle and Fire Phone.

The comparisons to Fire Phone, Amazon's failed smartphone project, seem to be of concern to some of Vesta's co-developers.

As with any unknown device of this measure, there are many unanswered questions and uncertain details.

However, the basic premise is that Vesta will be a voice activated assistant that can navigate your home, respond to your commands, and interact with other smart home devices.

The report contains a number of interesting details, including a suggestion that the device is between 25 and 33 centimeters in size.

The robot is reportedly equipped with a screen, microphone, and several cameras, and additional features could include sensors to monitor temperature, humidity and air quality with a small carrying compartment and a waist-height retractable column equipped with a camera, which can be combined with machine vision technology to help users find Items such as keys and wallets.

The Vesta project demonstrates Amazon's ongoing endeavor to include its products in customers' homes.

Over the years, the company has launched a number of devices trying to expand its reach into kitchens and bedrooms, from the discontinued Dash Wand, which allowed users to order groceries by scanning barcodes, to the Always Home Cam, a small drone that provides mobile surveillance around the home. .

The report says: Amazon is developing Vesta as a top priority, but initial sales expectations are modest, as the robot could initially be launched as a limited-edition product with an invitation-only system, similar to what it did with the Halo fitness device.

This method can prevent the company from wasting resources on unsold inventory.
