What the Amazon event tells us about Black Friday 2021


This year’s 2021 Amazon event held a lot of surprises. There was a smart home robot called Astro that combines huge swathes of Amazon’s technology portfolio into one companion device – smart displays, video cameras, and the like – as well as an Amazon Glow toy for games beamed via projector onto the floor in front of it. 

We also saw more information about a Ring camera drone, a new security system and Wi-Fi 6 router in the Ring Alarm Pro, a Blink Video doorbell, a Halo View fitness tracker with a built-in screen, and more.
