Alexa gets a cute robot friend
A ‘cute’ robot has been announced as an add on for Alexa and is now available directly from Moorebot and Amazon.
The new Hubble HUGO Robot, kitted with colourful ‘clothes’, is the only Alexa Smart Home accessory that adds a big camera eye and a smile.
As well as being a personal robot and smart speaker that can be used to control the smart home, it can also be used as a baby and child monitor with voice recognition that can act as a smart assistant to parents.
Hubble HUGO is an Amazon Alexa certified robot with built-in Alexa Voice Services (AVS) and includes a full HD camera with a motorised eyelid for privacy protection. Ideal for day and night monitoring, HUGO is capable of supporting almost 360 degrees viewing with PTZ function.
The robot works with thousands of Alexa Skills as well as the Alexa compatible devices in the smart home. With Alexa skills especially for HUGO, it can take photos and record videos by voice command, even remotely. HUGO is also able to detect faces with its special AI function, and once recognised, can capture pictures and videos.
Using the Alexa Voice Service, HUGO can play music, order supplies, stay on schedule, and provide information such as the news, sports scores, weather, and more.
