Anki Cozmo

Irish Daily Mirror - - MUSIC -

From CHIP the ro­bot dog to the in­ter­ac­tive doll My Friend Cayla, hi-tech toys have taken off in a big way in the past few years. But per­haps the cutest yet is Anki’s Cozmo ro­bot, which looks and acts as if it’s come straight out of a Dis­ney Pixar movie.

De­vel­oped by a team of roboti­cists, an­i­ma­tors and game de­vel­op­ers, Cozmo is not only one of the most so­phis­ti­cated con­sumer ro­bots avail­able to­day, but it’s also ex­tremely amus­ing, with a mis­chievous char­ac­ter all of its own. It can move around au­tonomously, recog­nise faces, play games, learn new skills and ex­press a whole range of emo­tions with its big dig­i­tal eyes. And thanks to ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, its per­son­al­ity evolves the more you play with it.

The free-to-down­load Cozmo app comes packed with in­ter­ac­tive con­tent suit­able for all ages, and you can even pro­gram your own moves us­ing Code Lab, so it’s ed­u­ca­tional as well as en­ter­tain­ing.
