Robots on Kickstarter or Indiegogo usually are slow-moving and expensive products, with little or no real utility. I don’t think ‘Aire’ is anything different, but it’s certainly… special. For $ 699 (or $ 749, once the base tier runs out), you can have the privilege of owning a hovering upside-down lampshade with the Alexa voice assistant built-in.
Aire claims to be “the world’s first intelligent robotic home assistant capable of autonomous flight.” Functionality-wise, it’s essentially a drone with the propellers covered by a shroud (so little Timmy doesn’t get wounded when he runs into it).
