Amazon’s newest innovative tech is the Amazon Glow, an interactive video-conferencing device with a built-in tabletop projector. The main goal is to allow kids to be interactive while communicating with friends and family across different locations. The ability to project games, books, pictures, or puzzles, allows the kids and parents(also grandparents) to play and talk together at the same time
The Amazon Glow comes with new features such as a shared display, showing what the kid sees and mirroring it on a remote iPad. Books, games, and some basic learning apps are different activities that the Amazon Glow can display. This is all connected to Amazon’s Kids Plus ecosystem, a subscription-based to connect the whole family. Parents will need to learn how to set up the Glow and teach their children the basics. Amazon targeted children between the ages of three through nine, so setting up age restriction content might be important for many parents. The Amazon Glow projects an 8-inch screen for video chat and is able to project a 22 inches screen using the screen mat. At the moment, the Amazon Glow is not yet released, but has a retail price of $299.99 and is looking to release around mid-October 2021.
