Amazon is supposedly putting more engineers to deal with a wise house robotic, a secret job called Vesta that was meant in 2015. The robotic isn’t prepared for mass production yet.

The waist-high robotic walk around on wheels, utilizes computer-vision electronic cameras and might be a mobile variation of Amazon voice assistant Alexa, according to Bloomberg, which mentioned confidential sources acquainted with the job.

The e-commerce giant will also release an upgraded version of its Echo speaker, which is apparently being developed at the same Sunnyvale, California, lab as Vesta, Bloomberg reported. The speaker may be wider than the current Echo to fit the additional components.

In an emailed response to the report, Amazon said it doesn’t comment on rumors or speculation.
