    He is a great little chap sits on our coffee table and he wonders about on his own and plays with his autonomously but you can code him too and there are some amazing coding ideas coming out in the forums and this is just the start ;-)

    They were pushing this like hell on a lot of popular YouTube channels on the run up to Christmas. I think the 220 asking price is the kicker and will put a lot of people off.

    Yeah pretty good evaluation for the average user.

    The americans have Alexa intergration now UK soon.

    And its the SDK thats the key, it is totally programable in python (although your programmes are just custom and not intergrated into the firmware) but this is a great space for Anki to see what people want it to do.

    Rmountjoy has prob pulled off the biggest so far making a web broswer that allows you control of Vector from running tasks to remote control.

    I got my daughter the Anki Cozmo for Christmas. It's a very clever piece of kit, even has facial recognition. The rise of the machines starts here!
