Amazon Unveils New Devices, Including Home Security Drone

Amazon also unveiled a cloud gaming service to compete against Microsoft and Google

Amazon’s slowly chipping away at its goal of connecting every device in your home to the internet, from the toilet seat to the rice cooker. Yesterday afternoon, the company showed off new gadgets and services, including…

  • Upgraded Echo devices with a fresh, spherical design
  • An in-car security system from Ring (Amazon’s home security unit), available first for Tesla drivers
  • Luna, a cloud gaming service to compete against Microsoft’s xCloud and Google Stadia 

But the craziest part…

A $250 home security camera that lives on a fully autonomous drone. The Always Home Cam can show users any room inside their house (you get to pick where it’s allowed to fly). 

  • Amazon covered the propellers to prevent damage and added obstacle avoidance technology…but we’ll see how well those work when the toddler and house cat team up. 

Zoom out: Amazon said its new devices will get the “climate pledge friendly” stamp of approval. The company emphasized ways it’s reducing its environmental impact, from low-power mode to using recycled materials.
