Anki’s Cozmo Robot is getting its first major software upgrade just in time for the holidays. The free update, which hits on December 5, 2016, will help Cozmo talk more, recognize pets, see in the dark, and play new games as it continues to improve its interaction with users.
Anki always said Cozmo was designed to be his own character and get smarter over time. That will be evident with the new “Cozmo Says” feature that expand’s Cozmo’s vocabulary beyond its user’s name. Users can type up to 30 characters into Cozmo’s app and he’ll repeat the words you type. Don’t worry, parents, Anki says it doesn’t allow Cozmo to repeat inappropriate words.
The software upgrade will also enhance Cozmo’s Explorer Mode.
