Is shopping for a child on your list? Well the hottest kid toy is a Cozmo ($149.99). An unofficial child of Wall-E and Eve, this consciously cute robot likes to play games and stack cubes. Like the Sphero BB-8 of two years ago, he’s app-programable and interactive. Like Furbies and Hatchimals he evolves the more you interact with him. He’ll even teach your kid (or you) basic coding.
The robot is vehicle shaped like a mini bulldozer and is operated by use of a smartphone. When it is delivered it will come with the robot, a charger and three power blocks that are used for gameplay and interaction with the robot.
Anki the company who makes Cosmo recommend Cosmo for 8 years old and up. It will actually appeal to most kids and adults who are interested in cutting edge tech toys. It will also appeal to anyone interested in robotics and AI intelligence.
First up it has facial recognition built in so it recognizes you when it wakes up from its charger. While it is charging Cosmo snores as well!
Cosmo really seems like a pet or a young child, so you will start to feel emotionally connected to him. He sulks if you don’t give him enough attention. He plays games with you and remembers the ones you like. The more you interact with him the more different emotions he shows and as you play games, new ones unlock.
