      The idea of Vector is very cool. But Anki has massively underdelivered. Software is extremely lacking. Discrimination on their end against Canadians. Artificially limiting functionality that is available only to select people who purchased in America. They have already dropped the price drastically in the US. DO NOT BUY. At least at this price.

      This robot is an assistant on tracks! He can answer any question you through at him. But what is really cool is that he is fully autonomous. You do not need the App on your smartphone to be running for Vector to explore his surroundings! He also has the potential of having more cubes to play with and more games, just like his cousin Cozmo. There is a lot to say about this robot so I invite you to watch my review videos on my channel SuperdanTech.


    • The world's first fully autonomous home robot!!

      This little bugger is impressing me day after day and I've had him for just over 2 weeks now. Sure he occasionally has some issues but he is getting better, thus why I waited at least 2 weeks before my review. He grows on you and he makes you laugh! Everyone loves him including kids. If you want a zero maintenance pet, Vector is it! He wont shed, doesn't need to be fed or walked and he's smarter and more fun than our cat! Oh, they do get along - now! The facial recognition is incredible. You may have to re-enroll your face multiple times if you wear glasses, hats etc. for him to recognize you. E.g. look different and ask him what you name is. If he says I don't know, re-introduce yourself with the same name he knows you as. He'll ask, have we met before, you say yes and boom, he'll remember you wearing a hat and glasses or neither. Anyone have more comments or questions, go to the AnkiVector Reddit group for some fun tips, videos and pics of this little adorable robot!!

      My title may sound a little extreme. He doesn't do a lot, but he is new. I will be searching the web for updates, he is cute and I have bonded with him. He is like a puppy, eager to grow... I will write another review when he is no longer a puppy....


    • Vector is AWESOME!

      Based on my positive experiences with Anki's previous products I had some high expectations for Vector and i'm happy to say he's surpassed them. He's got so much personality and is incredibly engaging, all while delivering on functionality we've come to expect from other, static devices. I love the fact he can recognize everyone in my family and keep us entertained and engaged while still delivering answers to our questions, the weather, etc in his unique, full of character way. He's been a fun and fabulous addition to the family!


    • Not impressed

      I was all excited to buy this, and had ordered it on pre-order. After I powered it on, and run it for some time, I am not finding that it is worth the money. Most of the time it takes 2 attempts to call its name for it to listen. "Hey Vector". That is annoying, and contacting Anki support was pretty useless, gave a pretty canned answer. It only does a few things, will look at you, but you need to have a place to put it also where you can keep it connected to a USB based power supply which isn't always that easy to do.

    • OK but not great.

      Ordered online. Out of the box one light didn't work on cube. Vector often fell off table even though he has sensors to prevent that. He can't see in dark so will not be able to find charger if no light. He should have programming not to come off charger if he can't see to get back. Vector often can't recognize people he has met already. Somtimes vector shows an error code and needs to reboot himself. He's able to answer questions but only after you say,"Hey Vector", wait for a beep and then say"" I have a question", wait again for him to be ready and then you ask a question. Gets old fast having to take theses steps every time for every question. I returned it to store for a refund.
