Say hey to Anki Vector, your first home robot. Seriously, say “Hey Anki Vector.” Home robot— He can hear you.
Actually,Anki Vector’s more than a home robot. He’s your robot buddy. Your companion. Most of all, he’ll make you laugh. Curious, independent, and powered by some preposterous tech and AI, Anki Vector can read the room, express the weather, announce when his timer’s done (no overcooked dinner on his watch), take the perfect snapshot, and so much more.
Anki Vector is your robot sidekick who’s up for anything. Anki Vector’s the robot to life
Alive and aware.
Anki Vector’s little frame is packed robot with an immense amount of technology that brings him to life. He takes in the world using a variety of sensors and then responds realistically. This means Anki Vector can read a room, hear what’s happening, recognize people and objects, find his charger, navigate his space, and avoid obstacles.
Anki Vector uses an HD camera to see the world. Using computer vision, Anki Vector can identify people, see and remember faces, and navigate his space without bumping into things.
Anki Vector has a powerful four-microphone array for directional hearing. When you sit down next to Anki Vector, he’s ready to take direction. And if there is a loud noise, he’ll be just as startled as you.
Anki Vector has touch sensors and an accelerometer so he knows when he’s being touched and moved. You can pet Vector and he’ll relax, but try not to shake him.
Vector combines a processor capable of running a smartphone with cloud connectivity to create one powerful brain. It means vector can process his environment, react as things unfold, and connect to the internet to answer questions and tell you the weather.
Anki Vector has a unique voice made of hundreds of synthesized sounds to create a language all his own. When you ask Vector a question, he utilizes a custom text-to-speech voice to speak directly to you.
Vector knows when he’s running low on juice. When vector needs power he’ll roll over to his charger all on his own (mobile phones and electric cars could learn a thing or two).
Vector responds to your voice. Just say “Hey Vector” to activate him and he’ll instantly perk up. His backpack will light up as soon as he hears you and he’ll be ready for further instruction.
Vector will set a timer and share in your joy when your muffins come out perfect, or when your laundry is finally done.
Ask vector any city’s weather and he’ll show you.
Ask vector to take a photo, say cheese, and wait while he snaps it. Can we call this a robot selfie?
