The new device of the e-commerce giant allows pet parents to monitor and talk to their animals from a distance.
In a recent event, Amazon announced the launch of Astro, which includes a recognition system for animals. It allows owners to have full control when they are not home.
The company said that the robot would allow pet parents to talk to their cat or dog from anywhere in the world. Astro can also send live videos to parents when they are not home.
The device comes with an interactive camera that helps create a routine for the animal and even gives pets a treat.
Amazon emphasized that Astro was conceived with security and privacy as a priority. The device processes data and allows pet parents to restrict its access in the home.
The purchase of a new device, at $999.99, is exclusively under invitation for the moment.
