Special Anki Overdrive "Fast and Furious" Edition Coming in September
Last year I reviewed the Overdrive Starter Kit from Anki, makers of the Cozmo robot. We had a lot of fun testing these AI-powered Super Cars out using the included specialized start track. Check out that review here.
There is a bevy of different Supercars, Supertrucks and track accessories available for purchase to keep the fun going, but Anki is bringing something new this fall, just in time for the holidays.
Anki has formed a partnership with the Fast and Furious franchise to release the Fast and Furious Edition which will be available this September for $229.99 (CAD) or $169.99 (USD).
The special edition will give Overdrive fans Dom's Ice Charger, Hobbs' MST and a "new exclusive track piece." This new track piece is listed as the "Power Zone" in the specs for the new kit. It is also worth noting that the new kit ships with one less straight track piece than the standard starter kit and includes in 12 guardrails.
It is worth noting that users will need to download a different version of the Overdrive app, designed specifically for the Fast and Furious Edtion.
Anki also told me that Hobbs' MXT and Dom's Ice Charger will not be made available as stand-alone vehicles for purchase. So, if you are looking to experience Overdrive the Fast and Furious way, you will need to purchase the entire kit.
