Why is Amazons Astro so important?
Amazons Astro is a landmark in the field of consumer robots. Were testing it right now as we prepare to give it a full review, but it doesnt actually have to be good to be important. Just the fact that it exists and is already in peoples homes is a huge step that many ambitious robots have failed to reach.
