Anki’s first robotic pet, Cozmo, rolled his way into our hearts last year with his cute and endearing robotic personality, and now we’ve just gotten our hands on Cozmo’s successor, Vector — the new and fully-autonomous home robot that we’ve been eagerly anticipating since Anki first announced it earlier this year. The next chapter in Anki’s pet home robot ambitions, Vector promises to deliver even more personality and — most significantly — direct Wi-Fi connectivity so the little guy can roam around your home without the need to rely on an iOS app, making it even more like a virtual pet. Although we’ve only spent a couple of days with Vector so far, he’s already made a big impression on the kids and adults alike. We’ll be rounding out thoughts out with a full review in the coming days, so be sure to check back for more on Vector’s adventures.



Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
