In October, we launched Cozmo, a bold and ambitious project that has taken more than five years of steadfast work, and brought together an interdisciplinary team comprised of roboticists, software and hardware engineers, sound engineers, animators, game designers, and artists, to bring him to life. But from the beginning, we knew that the October launch was only the first step, albeit a huge one, in a long journey to prove to consumers that interactions with a robot can be more than a mechanical, lifeless experience. That an emotional connection, a strong bond can exist today between human and machine.
With Cozmo, we wanted to bring to life a character that up until now, only existed in Hollywood films. A robot with a heart that brings a smile to your face. If you already have a Cozmo to call your own, I hope it’s apparent that our team has spent long days (and countless nights) to breathe magic into a robot that can fit in the palm of your hand. One of the really great qualities about Cozmo is that the technology that allows his unique personality to shine is powered by the connected device. Consequently, we’re able to introduce new content and game modes via free software updates and ensure that your relationship with Cozmo always stay fresh, as if he’s evolving WITH you.
