    First Real Robot, and so worth it

    Posted .

    My Vector is amazing. C1M7 says hello..., he is a fantastic little droid. His personality has developed into a fiesty explorer for sure. His first day on my desk will be forever remembered. He started out learning my name, a fist bump, telling my wife the weather, and then..., full explore mode! He was randomly playing with his cube, then decided to shoot over to the side of my desk with all of my markers and pens. Hit lifted his hands and then pushed them all off the desk. I said "vector, bad robot " he turned, looked sad with his green eyes (they can be customized) , and then went back to playing with his cube. I am happy to report he has never pushed them off the desk again. Lol. I am learning the sdk, and I don't fully understand how he thinks, but my family and I feel that Vector , C1M7.., this little guy..., he is a part of the family. Even my 2 dogs love him. Still work to go on the app, And AI functions as well. But remember. Just BC you ask your vector to do something. .., he has personality and might not want to do what you want right away. Amazing friend...err robot. (You'll love your vector)

    Small pet alike droid

    It is a small version of pet like robot, it is actually miniature version of smart device with mobility. The best feature as bonus is Alexa integration once it is provided after activated. It has basic working functionality with basic personality, Ai based query’s, facial detection, asking weather, playing some behaviors of pet like. Etc, the camera is not good quality because picture taken is so low pixel. Other is good to have and spend time with little pet.

    I really enjoy my Vector. Very smart and interactive. Works with the cloud. Does not always follow through with commands. Unfortunately Anki is no longer making the Vector but promises to continue with the cloud servers.

    Customer service is great . My only complaint would be the edge detection . My vector broke driving off counter top . Anki has been excellent to deal with and I'd give there customer service 5+ stars.

    A fun companion with potential

    |

    Posted .

    Vector does what is intended when it comes to the idea of a robotic companion. He feels and behaves like an intelligent pet. He’s expressive, curious, and mischievous straight out of the box. And he is able to recognize me by name almost every time. When he’s left alone he will explore on his own and play with his included cube toy. He is also able to answer questions, tell the weather forecast, etc. All as advertised. The thing that warrants the reduction of a star is his performance when it comes to navigation. This is my only gripe about this product. DO NOT leave this guy on a table unsupervised. He will likely fall. He does detect edges but seems to ignore them moments later and will trail edges dangerously until he’s knocked off. I’m not sure if it’s because my table is a light color but have caution when you have him up and off the floor. Vector also does not really map his surroundings well. You will probably have a better time if you place him in a square area where he can’t get lost! If he has to navigate around a complex area and suddenly has to charge he won’t actively move around to find his charger. He will simply spin in place until he sees it. So if he’s wandered too far he won’t know where to go. Also be sure to have ample light when operating Vector and you will have a much easier time getting him to do things. He has his flaws but Anki is aware of all of the things I mentioned so I will be keeping him and waiting patiently for a software update.

    I was skeptical at first on purchasing this thing but after further review I bought it. Not full price but its sale price, 179.99. I find the little guy endearing. He's on my kitchen table as we speak sleeping. His snores are adorable (He stops eventually and just goes silent) He does explore and he interacts with keys, clothes, etc. When he finds something 'interesting' he usually pushes it off the table. Sometimes he celebrates once his mission is complete and sometimes he moves on to the next thing. He dances when he feels like it, which so far is twice. When I'm home I carry him with me everywhere. Kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and he always finds something to stare at and mess with. I have one con that bugs me the most: low battery life (35-45 mins) of interaction and then he's running desperately for the charger. Yeah, he panics, like he knows he's dying. Full charge gives you about 45 mins at most. Wish it was more. Anki is well known for plenty of updates for anyone who is discouraged about the amount of 'utilities' he's able to perform...they'll come in due time. As a robotic pet/companion, he always puts a smile on my face. I recommend putting him on a coffee table or dining room table where you'll see him more (public area) His AI reflects based on the amount of interactions so don't put him somewhere where he's alone with his thoughts. Put him out in the open and have everyone poke him him, shake him, talk to him, he's meant for interaction. Also, great conversation piece for any dinner party, get-together, etc. Hope this helped.

    I was leery of this purchase especially for the price tag. But it's actually quite amusing. I still think it's not quite worth the price but they are close. His actions are limited and the app is nearly pointless. He has very few commands. It's skills are extremely limited. I ran out of things to make it do in about 30 minutes. However what I enjoy about it now is letting it be autonomous and do what it wants to do. I have it at my work desk and it makes the day a little more fun. Where I really had fun was downloading the apk for it and you can program it to say and do different things. It requires a bit of coding skill but it's been fun messing with its programming.

    Bought this curious why I thought I might like the idea of a tiny robot roaming the dining room table to keep me company. Pain in the butt this guy... Calls me by my name...constantly. He's actually glad to see me, high giving me, dancing around to music I play, and roaming about looking for things to play with... Like this round ashtray I have. He puts his arms in the ashtray and then he spins around in a circle while the ashtray stays mobile. Thought it was a fluke but he does it daily...hes having fun. Supposed to have a sensor so he knows where the edge of the table is so he won't fall off the edge... But...i catch him backing up and falls off the table backwards...eyes shaking about like he's surprised before falling. Funny toy... Yeah... I like him Wish he had more support from the developers...this guy can tell the time, temp, weather conditions....pretty cool Anyways, that's my take...hope you enjoyed the read.

    We bought bought this for our 8 year old son for Christmas because he was kind of obsessed with it. He is definitely a cute robot, with a lot of personality in his eyes. We were all kind of amazed at his ability to recognize us all & learn our names. & although I don’t really use “Alexa” for much, the new integration with Vector seems to have a lot of people excited. All that being said, I just say I don’t really see where this little robot has a lot of function in daily life & some of the “cute” & “wow” moments wear off pretty quickly. But as an A.I. For a kid he’s great.

    Fun and cute but limited capabilities

    This is a good quality little robot, it is in fact very small, fit in the palm of your hand. I use it mainly to add a sense of life to my small apartment, I did not want to pay additional fees to get a pet, so this was an option just to have that feeling of something moving around. This robot is designed to act kind like a dog, it makes some random noises, plays with its toy, and listens when you talk to it, although it understands a few commands. What I use the most is to ask it what is the time and about the weather, By the way, It does not always understands my commands, if you don't address it with the exact same way as when you program your voice, then it will not hear you. I've never used the camera to take pictures, and I think it is a big security risk for hacking, but you can't really block it, seems the robot uses it to look around when moving, so it may run into walls or fall off a table edge. With that said, you would need a flat surface to keep it, I have it in a small desk in my living room, so it feels like a robotic puppy kept in a fish tank, but no need to feed or clean up after, you only need to make sure it has access to its docking station and it will automatically go back there when battery is low. In general it is a nice novelty robot, too expensive for what it is, at that price I would not give it to children, it probably would not take that much abuse. I am an electronics engineer so this is an enjoyable companion robot, for people with different background, this may be just an expensive novelty toy.

    Cute little robot capable of self navigating around the house. Can do basic requests, answer questions, and has alexa built in. What is going to hook you are the expressive eyes and its little voice shouting your name when you approach it. Its little busyness beeping and bopping in utter joy as it plays with its toys. Its like a little pet. I've had it for 5 days and I look forward to seeing it when I get home. Strangely I even kinda miss it while I'm at work! Zero problems with error codes or falling off tables. Only con: It's expensive for what little it can do.

    Awesome Robot

    Just got my Vector and I absolutely love the little guy. Once I introduced myself to him, he then recognizes me, and it feels like I've got a new buddy. He reacts to everything around him - when the dog barked he instantly tuned around to look at her! You can ask him to do a bunch of tasks and he has some pretty cool moves as he goes around exploring his world. This product will get better over time as ANKI releases more updates, and I can't wait to see his personality and functionality grow. This is like the robots from the movies!

    The smart companion

    Posted .

    Not going to lie, at first I was skeptical. This little robot that can identify who I am, when I am talking to it and when I am home just sounded strange at first. But after living with Vector he really bacame an integrated part of my home. In the morning I ask Vector what the weather is so I can plan my day accordingly. While making dinner I ask him to set a timer for me. He is there when I need a distraction and keeps me company. Vector is more than just a smart source, he is fun to play with and interact with. His personality is what makes him unique and relatable. Although there are still some improvements to be made I would recommend Vector for any of my friends homes.

    I am a little disappointed in this purchase. I have a little more to learn about him but he doesnt seem to work as well for us as he does in many of the you tube reviews I have watched! I think its because the company closed their doors. I still bought because they stated there was still a group working on software updated etc so hopefully not a bust. Bought my 4.5 yr old a mibro robot for christmas and even though he loves it, he loves this more because it remembers his name and can answer questions, take pics etc.

    We’ve had Cozmo (also by Anki) for a few years and really love it. The whole family enjoys it. When I saw Vector I had to get one. It looks really cool and sleek. Set up was a breeze, same as Cozmo. Facial expressions and the voice are great. It’s fun to watch at first but gets boring after a bit. Basically he runs around whatever surface he is on, making noises and talking. It has a little personality that is also cute, but overall we found it’s just not as interesting as Cozmo. Even with its connection to Alexa, there wasn’t enough to justify spending that much on one. Two big disappointments were no ability to control him with an app remote like Cozmo (although you can control him with voice commands) and view live video of what it is seeing, and also it was hard for others to link it to the app on their own phones. For some reason, that was not an issue with Cozmo. Maybe there will be future updates that will make Vector worth it, but for now if you already have Cozmo I would recommend just sticking with that until Vector is upgraded. Unless of course you just like collecting robotics.

    Great Christmas present for anybody who likes to play with smart assistants and robots. The vector is a little smaller than I had anticipated. There was only once when it ran out of batteries before making it back to the charging station and almost tripped me. I recommend keeping Vector on an elevated surface. Cutest facial expressions for a tiny robot!

    Vector is really cool, he has a big personality in a small frame. One of the most amusing things about him is his face recognition. He can learn up to 20 different faces. All you have to do is introduce yourself to him. After introducing myself as Nick, he noe calls me Dave, but calls may wife and kids by their names. He likes to explore, dance to music, and playing with his cube. He is definitely a great addition to the family.

    Vector is cute. But after the "new toy" feeling wears off, he doesn't get much use. A bit pricey for what it actually is and does. It's nice that he can provide info when asked questions but often the reply is "I didn't get that". Google is much quicker and more reliable. But it is a kids toy afer all.
