Product specs

The Ubtech Lynx packs a lot of features into a short, robot body. Available now for $800 (converts to approximately £565, AU$990), Lynx can respond to your commands with Amazon's assistant Alexa. Lynx can also dance and watch your home with a security cam. It'll even teach you yoga. Click through to see Lynx up close and in action.

Lynx uses the camera on its forehead to keep watch over your home.

When not on duty as a security guard, Lynx is a friendly guy. You can command it to do a variety of gestures, including a hug.

Most importantly, Lynx has Amazon's Alexa built in.

Thanks to Alexa, Lynx can play music, control your smart home, search the internet, add entries to your calendar and more.

Lynx has a 2750mAh battery. The LEDs on the back fade one by one as it depletes. Plug in Lynx at this port on his back.

You can also control Lynx remotely with your phone. Move him around and communicate with your family from afar via the app.

Lynx will use the PIR sensor in its chest to sense motion and record the event with its camera.

Like other Alexa devices, you can activate Lynx with a wake word, or hit the mute button if you don't want Lynx listening.

Lynx plays music using the speakers in its ears.

Finally, Lynx will teach you yoga, and walk through the poses with you.

Lynx can also lead you through an exercise routine, though it won't do the activities along with you. It just sets a timer.

Lynx is about a foot and a half tall, and weighs just over 5 pounds. He's a small bot, but I'm excited to see functional robots moving into the home.
