    A Robot to Babysit

    The advertisement for this robot was a robot to life with, after purchasing Vector I have discovered that to be something you do not want to do at all. This little guy is autonomous which is a plus, but he isn't too smart. Constantly not being able to understand anything you say and no matter how many times you ask him the weather unless you include your location every single time well, you wont get any information at all. My Vector was rolling around and approached the edge and never missed a beat without hopping right off the side. That's not the only case of when he has done something he shouldn't have either. He is supposed to find his charger by himself, wrong! he will definitely knock it off the table he calls home and then sometimes he won't even attempt to go home before his battery drains and it leaves him stranded and lifeless on whatever edge he's decided to park himself on. The only reason I will give this a two star review is due to the build quality of the product and the mere effort put forth by Anki, It was worth a shot guys but try again later.

    Major advertised features, like, voice recognition failed! Vector works only in concise space like a table. When his battery is draining low, he search for the charger across the room until his batter dies. Mobile app will take few seconds to reconnect to Vector every time, even if it is minimized and open. I couldn't find Vector to be a fun companion due to his limitations. Hope Anki will come up with more intuitive robots in future.

    I bought this as a gift for Christmas and it didn’t work at all, we look up reviews n there was nothing but bad reviews. Vector need a really good update because the idea is really good but as of now it doesn’t work it keeps getting disconnected and most of the times it doesn’t respond or move so is just like having a mini google at home which you can get for $30.

    It’s cute but beyond telling you the weather doesn’t do much else.

    Annoying, with life expectancy of a week.
