Cozmo, is a little robot developed by Anki that has a personality like WallE the robot in the movie by Pixar. It is intelligent and express emotion through its eyes that shows on its small OLED screen. From curious to clever, persistent to playful, it has personality x 10, and lets you know it. It can developed new feelings the more you spend time with it. It can also get cranky if you ignore him. It also expresses emotions like anger, focused, annoyed, surprised, skeptical, bored, scared, sad, happy, or any combination.
Cozmo has no parts to put together. It's self-charging and ready to go out of the box. All you’ll need is a compatible iOS or Android device. And things like safety, security, and durability have all been rigorously tested.
Cozmo is constantly scanning his environment and recognizes people while reacting to emotions. His eyes light up when he sees a familiar face. If you haven’t played with him in a while, he’ll nudge you to play one of a handful of games. If you beat him, he might sulk.
It is priced at $180, and you can pre-order for only $159.99.
For ages 8 and up.
