Cozmo

Cozmo

Company: Anki, Inc.
Brand: ANKI

Cozmo was listed on Amazon for $179.99, USD brand new.


ANKI, known for their smartphone guided Overdrive car racing sets has pushed the boundaries of consumer robotics and Artificial Intelligence with Cozmo the Robot.

Cozmo, introduced in October of 2016 has proven so popular that the Anki website has sold out and is waiting themselves for more robots. Expect Cozmo to be one of the biggest tech toys for Christmas and probably 2017!

Key Features of Cozmo

  • Cozmo is a real-life robot like you've only seen in movies like Wall-E, with a one-of-a-kind personality that evolves the more you interact with him.
  • Cozmo expresses real emotions in response to your actions.

What Makes Cozmo a Great Purchase?

First up it has facial recognition built in so it recognizes you when it wakes up from its charger. While it is charging Cozmo snores as well!

The thing is that Cozmo has so many fun features that we don't know where to start. What we really like about the robot is that he/she really seems like a pet or young child and you will start to feel emotionally connected. He explores and sulks if you don't give him enough attention. He plays games with you and remembers the ones you like.

The more you interact with him the more different emotions he shows and as you play games, new ones will unlock.

To get the full enjoyment from Cozmo you will need to download the app and interface with him/her thru the app. Both iOS and Android are supported. The app has just recently been updated to Version 1.1.

If you or your kids are into tech gadgets this is going to be a must have on your list and you are going to be full of envy once you see others using it. For amateur robotics engineers they will think they have died and gone to heaven with this AI robot.
