Amazon’s Astro robot is straight out of The Jetsons:

Amazon is rolling out (literally) a robot that can help monitor your home. Powered by Amazon Alexa and a bunch of artificial intelligence (AI) technology while patrolling about on a set of wheels, the Astro robot can handle numerous tasks, from providing a view of inside the home when you’re out to delivering a message to Mom.

The robot carries the same name as the dog from The Jetsons, but its simple face, rolling mechanism and, of course, advanced tech, make it much more similar to Rosey. Amazon's Astro relies on AI, sensors, computer vision, and voice and edge computing to perform various workloads.

For example, Astro can roll around your home and give you a live view of what it sees. That means you can check on your pet, look out for intruders, or make sure you turned the oven off. Astro is mobile thanks to a technology Amazon has dubbed Intelligent Motion. It uses simultaneous location and mapping (SLAM) to ensure Astro makes its way around without crashing into stuff—even if someone forgot something on the floor that wasn’t there before.

[...] Astro will ultimately be available for $1,449.99. However, there’s a $999.99 introductory price as part of Amazon’s Day 1 Editions early access program, and that includes a six-month trial of Ring Protect Pro. Amazon plans to start inviting participants to buy Astro in the US “later this year.”

    Wait until CLOT SHOTS really start killing those DUMB enough to take one when FLU SEASON kicks in Oct-March or so!

    I hate to say it, but it makes you PITY THEM for being SO f'ing dumb!

    Pure SUICDE like "DeathMonkey" suicided himself vs. me ASKING FOR IT here lol []

    Especially vs. a COMMON-COLD being put out as some "plague" when they CAN'T SHOW YOU A "COVID 19 VIRUS" under an electron microscope!

    When THE PCR TEST was invalidated! Especially by Kary Mullis the INVENTOR of it stating it proves nothing when it is turned up past iirc 24 cycles, which it WAS, to create FALSE POSITIVE results that ROPED DOPES IN for the next point:

    When the WHO changes the DEFINITION of "pandemic" from NUMBER OF DEATHS vs. NUMBER OF CASES to make a herd stampede in panic (herd of stupid sheeple).

    Please: ENJOY your periocarditis, myocarditis, brain aneurisms, NERVOUS "twitch" disorders OR PARALYSIS or lung CLOTS if not cancer or sterility from your "FINE VACCINE" (which doesn't even WORK, lol - except to tune you into RADIO STATION "WKILL", lol - can't happen soon enough & it will soon, bank on it).

    * They KEEP "downmodding" this post, but I just put it up again, lmao as I do - there is NO STOPPING FACT or me, get used to it, losers.

    EVERYONE knows it: Even the "DemonRATS" who were proven to have CHEATED in Maricopa county Arizona - all "their kind" KNOW how to do is cheat, lie, steal (& produce zero with their do-nothing TROLL LEACH LIVES).

    Nicest part of it though? It shows & they fool NOBODY but themselves - Satan's LITTLE PAWNS, & nothing more.


    P.S.=> SOCKPUPPETEERING DEMONRATS DELUDING THEMSELVES attempting to "FOOL" others, only FOOLING THEMSELVES? SOYLENT NEWS' OWN moderators/admins here KNOW it goes on, big write up here on it in fact [] on downmod bombing opponents/upmodding their many sockpuppet accounts etc. who "downmod bomb" others when they are BLOWN AWAY by FACTS - you know - like Ivermectin is a solution that not only works but was AWARDED & noted as such since the mid 1990's for HUMAN BEINGS TOO iirc)... apk
