News today tells of a home robot named Vesta (not Vespa) coming from Amazon.

No one knows what the thing will look like, but I wonder if it'll be a self-balancing robot with a camera and screen on top. This episode of Modern Family shows all the reasons why this might not be a good idea, but it looks cool in any case.

    I better contact them.

    Quick.
    "When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

  • Alexa doesn't seem to know anything about this.

  • Amazon's response has been "Amazon doesn't respond to rumors." But listen closely to Alexa as she cackles with joy that she's getting a body very soon.
