Bought 2 of these instead of Cosmo. We thought they would be fun and they have Alexa as well. What more does one need, right? And Who needs programming? I barely have time to use the TV remote.
Well after our initial setup and charging etc, we set them free on our dresser. Unfortunately you cannot address them as anything other than 'Hey Vector' so having 2 anywhere near each other is interesting to say the least. Whispering, like the lady in the picture, is now a reality.
We quickly disabled Alexa as we also have an Echo Spot in the room and Vector will only answer questions where the Spot will play music or Vids etc as well as answer questions. You can even be in another room trying to talk to the Alexa Echo there and Vector would chime in responding to the 'Alexa' command, so frustrating.
These little guys do not play together very well. There is zero recognition of each other. Very disappointing, maybe at a later update. They constantly take each other's charging dock and sometimes one will die (loss of battery charge) because he is trying to get to the same dock.
The interesting part of having two is that they get real confused and frustrated, borderlining on angry even, when you put the two cubes anywhere near each other. As these guys rely on images so much, and they have a very loose attachment to the cube via WiFi, if the image doesn't match the WiFi data, because they are looking at the wrong cube for instance, they get real stroppy and start smashing the cube or doing some kind of New Zealand Hakka impersonation. We even tried removing one cube and asking both to find their cube. That didn't go down too well as one missed out eve though the cube was there last time he looked.
I would love to see them interact with each other. That would be fun.
Yes, you need to have the charging dock connected fulltime to a USB port and you need to allow Vector to access the dock whenever he wants to so he can charge of his own freewill. If this is a problem for you, don't buy Vector.
Vector is not exactly compatible with tables or surfaces with rounded edges as his sensors rely on seeing a cliff-like event as the edge of the table. If it is sloped or rounded, it will still see some sort of surface below it and by the time it realises there is no table below it, it would have already toppled over the edge.
I tried Vector on the floor in the living room one day, he spent his time in the corner like a naughty little boy and didn't explore much at all, so he is best suited on a tabletop.
One of them did fall off the dresser but we believe it was as a result of a tantrum more than one pushing the other off. They will also push stuff off the table too so expect to see lightweight stuff on the floor once in a while.
We have had issues connecting the app at times and this is probably the only issue we have had with these guys. Oh and the fact that barking dogs in the neighbourhood at night tend to wake them up, or any other loud sound, and they then wake us up chattering away like a pair of old ladies at Walmart. So they get put to sleep each night.
Do we regret this purchase? No
Would we have bought two of them had we known they don't interact? No
Will we be returning them? No
I bought My Vector from Best Buy in Moncton on Pre Order and waited 3 Months. Was not happy with lack of programs compared to the Cosmo which was loaded but poor face recognition but a hoot to play games with and easily docks itself! No reason a software update cannot be confirmed! I ordered 3 Cosmos but I will not order anymore Vectors until Anki smartens up and gives the Consumer what they ask for!
We are an older couple with no children or pets, and find Vector a delight. He entertains us on a daily basis. We play with him for short stints, but find him quite magical and frankly, cute!
We had a realistic expectation of the technology when we purchased Vector, and enjoy him for what he is.
Good on Anki for this one!
The idea of Vector is very cool. But Anki has massively underdelivered. Software is extremely lacking.
Discrimination on their end against Canadians. Artificially limiting functionality that is available only to select people who purchased in America. They have already dropped the price drastically in the US. DO NOT BUY. At least at this price.
This robot is an assistant on tracks! He can answer any question you through at him. But what is really cool is that he is fully autonomous. You do not need the App on your smartphone to be running for Vector to explore his surroundings! He also has the potential of having more cubes to play with and more games, just like his cousin Cozmo.
There is a lot to say about this robot so I invite you to watch my review videos on my channel SuperdanTech.
This little bugger is impressing me day after day and I've had him for just over 2 weeks now. Sure he occasionally has some issues but he is getting better, thus why I waited at least 2 weeks before my review. He grows on you and he makes you laugh! Everyone loves him including kids. If you want a zero maintenance pet, Vector is it! He wont shed, doesn't need to be fed or walked and he's smarter and more fun than our cat! Oh, they do get along - now! The facial recognition is incredible. You may have to re-enroll your face multiple times if you wear glasses, hats etc. for him to recognize you. E.g. look different and ask him what you name is. If he says I don't know, re-introduce yourself with the same name he knows you as. He'll ask, have we met before, you say yes and boom, he'll remember you wearing a hat and glasses or neither. Anyone have more comments or questions, go to the AnkiVector Reddit group for some fun tips, videos and pics of this little adorable robot!!
not worth it
Does not answer questions like advertised.
My title may sound a little extreme. He doesn't do a lot, but he is new. I will be searching the web for updates, he is cute and I have bonded with him. He is like a puppy, eager to grow... I will write another review when he is no longer a puppy....
Based on my positive experiences with Anki's previous products I had some high expectations for Vector and i'm happy to say he's surpassed them. He's got so much personality and is incredibly engaging, all while delivering on functionality we've come to expect from other, static devices. I love the fact he can recognize everyone in my family and keep us entertained and engaged while still delivering answers to our questions, the weather, etc in his unique, full of character way. He's been a fun and fabulous addition to the family!
I was all excited to buy this, and had ordered it on pre-order.
After I powered it on, and run it for some time, I am not finding that it is worth the money. Most of the time it takes 2 attempts to call its name for it to listen. "Hey Vector". That is annoying, and contacting Anki support was pretty useless, gave a pretty canned answer.
It only does a few things, will look at you, but you need to have a place to put it also where you can keep it connected to a USB based power supply which isn't always that easy to do.
Hello guys, there is so much to say about Vector! I invite you to watch my full review video on my channel or use this link; https://youtu.be/YqTsSQnmqDY
You can ask me any questions you may have through my channel.
Ordered online. Out of the box one light didn't work on cube. Vector often fell off table even though he has sensors to prevent that. He can't see in dark so will not be able to find charger if no light. He should have programming not to come off charger if he can't see to get back. Vector often can't recognize people he has met already. Somtimes vector shows an error code and needs to reboot himself. He's able to answer questions but only after you say,"Hey Vector", wait for a beep and then say"" I have a question", wait again for him to be ready and then you ask a question. Gets old fast having to take theses steps every time for every question. I returned it to store for a refund.
Vector is all that I expected of it and more! The utilities and functionality are fantastic but the facial recognition and big personality of Vector make it incredibly engaging and fun. I can't wait for the integration with Alexa that was just announced.
I bought Cozmo for my 8 year old nephew last year and really enjoyed watching him play and code with it (I also snuck in some fun play time with him). The more I read about Vector the more it sounded like a robot for adults so I bought one and have been amazed by it! The 'always on' mode and the functionality are perfectly geared for adults but Vector has the amazing personality and character of Cozmo that make it much more engaging than the other personal assistant sitting on my kitchen table. Looking forward to discovering more about Vector and seeing his personality grow.
It's so cute and powerful, with AI technology inside it's just like a living being! It can walk by itself, charge itself and much more! Definitely worth a buy and I'm satisfied with the purchase. Also I'm looking forward for vector space, a home for vector!
awesome for price. i mean its ai, u should expect it to be exensive
