It’s been a while since we saw Terminator, but I think this might have been how Skynet started. The robot revolution needs to start somewhere though, so why not with the Lynx Alexa Enabled Smart Home Robot? Lynx is basically like an Amazon Echo smart speaker, but if the Echo could walk around, patrol your home and snap video of any motion, and identify you and your family members using facial recognition. I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Utilize all of the Amazon Alexa skills via your Lynx robot.
  • Select Surveillance Mode in the app and Lynx will take a 30 second video if the PIR sensor on the chest is activated. Lynx will then send the video to your smartphone to ensure you know what is happening at home.
  • Make sure you don’t miss another event again by sending Lynx in your place! In Avatar mode, you can see what the robot sees and speak through the robot with app-enabled functions.
  • Lynx is ever evolving and will be growing as Amazon Alexa and robotics grows. Stay tuned for more feature updates in the near future.
