TECH THE HALLS – DAY #3: Anki Vector Robot

Vector

Vector’s petite frame is equipped with a ton of cool technology that brings the robot to life. It has a number of sensors that allow it to make sense of its surroundings and to react realistically. This means it can sense a room, hear what’s happening, recognize people and objects, find its charger and avoid obstacles.

Vector is Truly Aware

He Can See

Vector uses HD cameras to see its surroundings. Using computer vision, it can identify people,see and remember faces, and navigate around without running into obstacles.

He Can Hear

Vector uses its four-microphone array for directional hearing. Meaning it is ready for directions and will be just as startled as you if there is a loud noise.

He Can Feel

Vector has touch sensors and an accelerometer so it is aware when being touched or moved. Pet it and it will relax!

He Can Think

Vector has a built in processor that is capable of cloud connectivity to create one powerful brain. Meaning it can process its environment and connect to the internet to answer any questions you might have.

It Can Communicate

Vector has a unique voice made of hundreds of synthesized sounds to create a language of its own. It uses a custom text-to-speech voice to to speak directly to you if asked a question.

It Can Self Charge

Vector knows when it is running out of power. It will automatically roll over to his charger when running low on battery (wouldn’t it be great if our cell phones could do that!)

Costs

The Vector robot retails for $249.99 CAD and with it you will get a Vector robot, a charging base, an interactive cube (for playing games with the robot).

Vector is constantly upgrading with access to cloud connectivity and is constantly getting new and improved features added to it. Amazon Alexa is will be integrated with it in the coming days as well.
