We started Anki in 2010 with the mission to harness robotics and AI technologies to bring to life consumer products with unprecedented level of intellect and interactive capabilities. These powerful technologies have the ability to disrupt many of today’s biggest and most entrenched industries; change the way we interact with one another; and, transform our day-to-day.
However, in order to get to a place where robotics is truly additive to our society, we need to collaboratively chip away at the problem. That’s why we started with Anki DRIVE. It was a proof of concept for how we could pack some of the most complex robotics technology ever available to consumers in a tiny package, all at an accessible price.
With COZMO, we built a robot that has the same sophistication as some robots currently used in research labs. Those robots typically cost thousands of dollars and stand several feet tall. Cozmo, in stark contrast, fits in the palm of your hand and costs a fraction of the price.
