Amazon’s indoor camera drone is ready to fly around your house

Next up: cameras. Amazon's crazy indoor, flying drone camera—the ambiguously named "Ring Always Home Cam"—is actually for sale now in the US. This was announced a full year ago, but now it's available "exclusively by invitation" for $249.99. This is a "Day 1 Edition" (read: a beta product). So Amazon isn't letting just anyone buy it. You can request an invitation to give Amazon money on the product page.

In case you've not had enough dystopian future products:
Amazon’s Astro Robot is Straight Out of the Jetsons

    Been a long long time since I watched the Jetsons, but they were dystopian???

    How? They had flying cars.

    We are living in the shittiest possible cyberpunk dystopia.
    All of the surveillance, oppression, corporate oligarchies; but none of the fancy tech, bio-neural-cyberspace, or space exploration. We don't even have weird alternate political systems!
    The sci-fi future you ordered is no longer in stock.
