Amazon Does a Home Robot: Astro

A number of such 'friendly' ranging home robots have been around, none successful.  I recall the Pepper, Yumi, Kuri, Jubi, Aibo robots.  All mentioned here.  Eldercare being hinted at.  Has also been rumored to be under development for years.  This is expensive. Notably it will not climb stairs, or I would assume even a single step, or rugs?
