Cozmo Is a Tiny Pixar Style Robot: COZM-E

by Conner Flynn

Cozmo is a robot with a personality straight out of Pixar movies. It comes from Anki, who are known for their intelligent remote controlled cars. It isn’t surprising that it has that whole animated movie thing going for it. Its robotic movements were designed by former Pixar animators and computer vision technologists. It is pretty adorable.

Cozmo is curious, expressive, and can interact with the world around it. It will recognize your face and remember you, explore its environment and play games with own toys. When it charges, it “sleeps” in a tiny dock, with a snoring sound effect and sleeping animation. How expressive is it? Enough that people might just fall in love with it.

Just like a child, Cozmo slowly learns to recognize people and explore its world, and over time it learns to play games. And like a child, it gets frustrated when things don’t work out.

Those arms will be interchangeable with other appendages soon too. This definitely seems unique in the world of toy robots. This should be very interesting to play with. You can pre-order Cozmo from Anki for $159.99(USD), a $20 savings off of the MSRP. It’s expected to start shipping this October, so it could be the perfect high tech holiday gift.
