What is this all about?
It's called a prototype. Once you are able to buy that device, then we can talk about it being more than vaporware.
And Amazon applying for a patent means precisely nothing. Plenty of people apply for patents for plenty of things. Doesn't mean they will actually manufacture such a device. Just that they *could* one day, maybe, sort of, hopefully, manufacture it.
Until then - vaporware.
