Yumi is the First Robot Powered by Amazon Alexa – Robotics Trends

Meet Yumi, the first Amazon Alexa-powered robot. How closely tied to Amazon is Yumi?

Well, look a little closer at its smile in the video above and you’ll notice Yumi’s mouth is the Amazon logo.

Created by Omate, Yumi stands 11.7 inches tall and features a rotating head and wheels. However, it appears the wheels are used just to rotate Yumi and not actually move it around.

You interact with Yumi just like you do with Amazon Echo – using your voice. Yumi features voice recognition technology from Sensory, which recently partnered with Amazon to bring its Alexa technology to other devices.

Yumi has access to more than 3,000 Amazon Alexa skills, and Omate says you can ask Yumi anything you want to know – the weather forecast, news, traffic, etc.
