So when I'm interacting with the Amazon Echo, I tend to personify Alexa.
Well, the Lynx robot from Ubtech is taking that to a whole new level.
level because Alexa kinda looks like a person now.
This cute little guy dances, does yoga, can reach out and give you a hug.
It has the Alexa assistance built in so you can control your Smart Home Home, play music and do all the other things that Alexa can do.
On top of the Alexa capabilities, this thing can actually read your emails to you, you can dictate emails to it and it has a security monitor built in So, it's a companion that also doubles as a security device that also doubles as a personal assistance and smart home controller.
It is really cool in concept.
But when I first heard about the Linx, I thought it was gonna make Alexa a lot more mobile, but Linx is a lot better at moving side to side and doing those dances Positions than moving forward and back.
If you need it to go anywhere, it's gonna take away.
[UNKNOWN] also said they don't have all of Alexa's third party partnerships lined up yet.
So I'm not actually sure how many of Alexa's integrations you're going to be able to use with Lynx.
The Lynx is due out this summer and it's gonna be expensive Somewhere between 800 and $1,000 probably.
So even though LINKS is cute and can guide you through yoga poses, that's a lot to spend on a mobile elective device that's not all that mobile.
