Amazon’s new robot having a surveillance camera that can record everything happening inside your house but can also be a privacy threat for many people.
The new robot, referred to as the Astro robot, can record everything happening in your home, including the recognition of faces, assessing the habits of household members, and your happy and sad moments.
It might look good as it will allow a user to capture the memorable moments that happen in our life when we don’t have a camera around to capture them, but some users might take it as ‘way too much’ exposure of their private life to the camera.
People usually do not prefer to record every single second of their personal lives as privacy is a basic requirement for several human beings.
Another fault with this device is, it is not fully prepared for usage yet.
According to a source, the Astro robot is not able to recognize stairs yet, and might fell off when placed on stairs.It is also not completely successful in recognizing the faces of the residents inside a house as its face recognition technology is not up to the mark as well.
It is not ready for use at this moment.
The amount of data and information collected by this device will not be appreciated by many users in the future due to privacy concerns. Plus, it is not confirmed whether the collected data is safe or not. Its access to hackers or police departments is still a question.
Share this article in your social circle and ask people if they would like to have this kind of device in their houses. The wonders of science and technology are mesmerizing, and in no time, we might enter a new era of technology.
