We’ll show you the steps you need to take to request an invitation to purchase Amazon’s home robot when it is available for sale later this year.

Amazon recently unveiled a new hardware device. And the Amazon Astro is unlike anything we've ever seen from the e-commerce giant.

The new device is a home robot with a touchscreen on wheels that can bring Alexa to any room in your home and much more.

If you're interested in Amazon Astro, we'll show you how to request an invitation to buy the robot when it goes on sale later this year.

It's Time for a Survey

Unlike other products on Amazon, you'll need to go through a few extra steps to start the purchase process for the robot. It's currently $999.99 as an introductory price. That will eventually jump to $1,449.99.

First, log in to your Amazon account and head to the Amazon Astro page. On the right-hand side of the page select Request an Invitation. You'll then be taken to a survey page. All the questions need to be answered to complete the request.

Some of the questions tackle different features around your home and issues that might cause Astro not to function like ramps between spaces or over stairs or solid black glossy flooring. Finally, you'll select the top reason you're interested in Amazon Echo.

While Amazon doesn't state why you need to take the survey, it's likely that the company wants to send the first Astro units to homes where the robot has the best chance to work without running into any issues.

If Amazon selects you, you'll receive an invitation to purchase the Astro and can return to the product page to complete the purchase. The company does state that the robot has limited quantities and not all requests will be granted. So you'll need some luck to hopefully score the unique Alexa-enabled robot.
