Amazon hosted an invite-only product launch event Thursday, and we got a look at several new products. A new, moving smart display was announced, called the Amazon Echo Show 10. It costs $250 (£240), and will be available “soon.”
The Echo Show 10 is Amazon’s first motorized smart display. It uses the AZ1 Neural Edge processor’s sound localization and computer vision models to triangulate your location in the room and turn the screen to face you. Alexa isn’t using facial recognition to identify a specific person; it’s only looking for a human shape. All of the display’s person-finding data is stored locally, Amazon says, so nothing is ever stored on a cloud.
