Amazon’s fall event on Wednesday revealed quite a few pleasant surprises, a thorough list of which is right here!

The All-New Robot

Yes, a robot was the highlight of Tuesday’s Amazon event. Named ‘Astro’, Amazon revealed a home assistant robot, that can help with home security monitoring, act as a mobile device, and more. It has a 10-inch touchscreen that shows an adorable “face,” and it travels on wheels. Customers can now request an invite to buy it as part of Amazon’s Day 1 Edition program, at the cost of $999.99. The robot will begin shipping to selected customers later this year.

A Videoconferencing Device For Kids

Amazon has launched a new Echo Glow device built just for kids who are learning via videoconferencing. The Echo Glow has an eight-inch display to see friends or family members and a touch-sensitive tabletop projector gadget that can be used to play games, read books, and make art. The device will have content from Disney, Nickelodeon, Mattel, and Sesame Workshop. Priced at $249.99, you can apply to the early access program to get selected. When it is released to a wider audience sometime later, it will cost $299.99.
