This month Digital Dreams have announced the availability to preorder Cozmo 2.0 offering a number of extras for orders placed before November 30th, 2020. After which shipping is expected to take place as early as May 15th, 2021.
As well as a few subtle changes to Cozmo’s appearance, there are a number of hardware improvements under the hood that will make a big difference in this little robot, such as :
– Increased Battery Life – a new battery will provide as much as 30% more runtime. (Batteries can also be replaced more easily via the redesigned battery compartment.)
– Better Obstacle Detection – four proximity sensors will allow Cozmo to better navigate his environment.
– Improved Camera Resolution – a new 2MP camera will enhance Cozmo’s facial recognition; improving his ability to recognize pets and even know if someone is smiling.
