Anki Cozmo - New Version!!
If you have been following GadgetSyrup since the beginning, you likely know that I am a huge fan of Anki and their products. I first discovered Anki when their Cozmo robot was announced and have since reviewed every product they have released. The strides they have taken with their products and the amount fun the bring to our home are amazing. Overdrive, their AI-assisted racing game is guaranteed to to deliver hours of fun. As for Cozmo, we have two, the original and the Collector’s Edition with its Liquid Metal finish Every time Cozmo comes out, the kids go wild. I’m not going to lie, so do I!
Anki has recently announced their next big product, Vector, a more powerful and advanced version of Cozmo, but that doesn’t mean that Cozmo is going to scrap heap! In fact, Anki has just announced a new Cozmo edition, Cozmo Limited Edition.
What is Cozmo Limited Edition?
It has only been two short years since Anki released Cozmo to world. Since then he has been one of the most successful toys, and I use the term toy loosely because Cozmo is so much more than that. Yes, Cozmo delivers lots of fun, but he also brings a powerful educational tool thanks to the Cozmo Code Lab.
Thanks to the wild success of Cozmo, who was the #1 best-selling toy on Amazon in the US, UK & France in 2017, Anki has continued to celebrate that success by giving us Cozmo in “Interstellar Blue”. He is the same lovable WALL-E-like Cozmo, just with a fresh coat of paint.
Where Can You Get Cozmo Limited Edition?
Cozmo Limited Edition is being sold exclusively at Best Buy Canada. He was released on September 23. For other countries, keep an eye on Anki’s website for additional regions.
Cozmo Limited Edition is retailing for $249.99 CAD at Best Buy, and for those of you in the US, Cozmo will set you back $179.99 USD.
I am happy to see that Anki is continuing to support Cozmo with Vector on the way later this year. They are even “working on an entirely new way for Cozmo to express his personality for this Holiday season”. I am very excited to see what kind of fun the Cozmo team can bring us for Christmas.
It is also nice to see new colour combinations coming to Cozmo, and I hope that Vector sees some similar options, but what would be even better would be a system where customers can customize their own Cozmo. Something not too far off what Motorola used to offer with the Moto X line of phones, Moto Maker.
