CES 2017. Las Vegas as Robot City: Meet Alexa-powered Lynx Robot

Lynx Robot is Alexa's best disguise at CES 2017.  (c|net, 1/5/2017)
Available later this year at $800-$1000. Lynx is on display at CES 2017. We got to see the cute little guy doing a dance and striking various poses. Lynx will show you how to do various exercises and thus help you with yoga, but though its flexible and quite capable of shuffling, I was disappointed to found out it's not great at moving forward or backward. I'd thought Alexa would be able to follow you around or find you, but Lynx scoots forward too slowly to be useful.
