Amazon Working on Home Robot

"It’s unclear what tasks an Amazon robot might perform. People familiar with the project speculate that the Vesta robot could be a sort of mobile Alexa, accompanying customers in parts of their home where they don’t have Echo devices. Prototypes of the robots have advanced cameras and computer vision software and can navigate through homes like a self-driving car. Former Apple executive Max Paley is leading the work on computer vision. Amazon has also hired specialized mechanical engineers from the robotics industry."

Call me alarmist but all I can think about when reading this is that X-Files episode from a few weeks ago.

If this robot can clean leaves from the yard and mow the grass., then I'm in.
