About this deal
Anki has now released a Cozmo SDK that’s allowing developers and tinkerers to find new uses for and ways of playing with the robot. A community of thousands on the Cozmo US forums has seen the bot programmed to do everything from display sports scores to weather updates through the Python programming language. The toy is now being seeded with US universities as a gateway device for teaching coding. And if that’s not enough, then the Cozmo SDK means you can tinker to your heart’s content with the toy using the Python programming language – or just use it as a gateway to learn to code. With 866 animations, expressive onscreen eyes and 42 minutes of audio and music, Cozmo is programmed to react expressively to so many different situations that even its creators are finding new easter eggs. Watching Cozmo stress out when being turned on one side, or use his forklift arms to flip over when placed upside down is a joy to take part in. Python programming

Type your name into the app, have Cozmo map your face, and you’ll have your jaw drop when it rolls over to your and bleep your name out in a charmingly synthesised little voice. Toy time Not that Cozmo relies on an app to interact with. While it’s required for setting up the robot and pulling off certain functions (like an “Explorer” mode that turns Cozmo into a robo RC vehicle), Cozmo is most fun when interacting with of its own accord.As well as the standard white flavour, there’s also a special collector’s edition Cozmo that features a more Dark Side-esque brushed grey finish.
