Anki has today unveiled their new creation in the form of Cozmo a friendly robot which is equipped with artificial intelligence, as well as a companion smartphone application.
The new Cozmo robot is now available to preorder price to $160 offering a $20 saving of the retail price of $180 when the little robot launches later this year before the holiday season during October 2016.
Check out the video below to learn more about the inspiration, design and technology that has been used to create Cosmo the interactive robot that is capable of expressing his feelings and playing with his power cubes. Anki explains more about their new pocket robot.
Cozmo doesn’t just move; he gets curious and explores. He doesn’t just learn; he plots and plans. He doesn’t just see you, he gets to know you. So call him self-aware, call him almost human. Just don’t call him a toy. He’s a supercomputer on treads. And he’s fun on a whole new level.
Cozmo’s emotions aren’t random. They’re real and felt by everyone in the room. From curious to clever, persistent to playful, he has personality x 10, and lets you know it. He’ll be your partner in crime, developing new feelings the more you hang out. But watch out, he’s addicted to fun. Ignore him and he’ll get cranky. Robots aren’t perfect.
Cozmo refuses to sit tight and wait for fun. He’s ready to play, and he’s here to win. Cozmo is a game playing machine (literally). And the more you get to know each other, the better it gets as new activities and upgrades are unlocked. So whether he’s playing with his Power Cubes or challenging you with his favorite games of speed and skill, like Quick Tap, Memory Match, and Keepaway, he’s always ready for action.
