In 2018, Anki released an adorable tank-like programmable robot called Cosmo that you could take home. It followed Cosmo with Vector, a robot with more character. And then Anki went bankrupt and killed the personalities of the two robots. But good news: a new company called Digital Dream Labs has brought them back from the dead, and now it̵
Cosmo 2.0 is very similar to the original, which is good considering the design itself was pretty perfect. But Digital Dreams has made some welcome improvements, including better battery life, better cameras and a color screen.
Cosmo used the cameras for object detection and to recognize people, and his display served as his eyes and means of expression. But on the outside it retains its bright white and cheerful appearance and forklift arms. What is not clear is whether it comes with a cube for play and interaction.
Digital Dream Lab says Cosmo 2.0 comes with a coding curriculum, a replacement tread pack, and a limited edition sticker pack for anyone who pre-orders the robot. The company is now taking pre-orders and promises to deliver Cosmo 2.0 to your home as early as May 15. Pre-ordering today will spend $ 197 saving you just under $ 23.
