Meet Cozmo! Like Wall-E, Johnny 5, R2D2, and other robots you’ve only experienced in movies.. Cozmo’s here and he’s actually real! Your little curious robot friend is full of surprises, he’s much more than a toy.
What Cozmo Can Do
Cozmo can do a ton of stuff! He senses, understands, and shows emotions depending on what’s around him. He also recognizes faces and plays games, and has much more abilities!
So let’s break down more of what this cute little robot can do.
Games Cozmo Can Play
Cozmo loves playing games, he’s very competitive and will try his best to beat you every chance he gets. Here are the games Cozmo plays.
One of this robots favorite games is Keepaway. The objective of this game is to slowly put one of the playing cubes in front of Cozmo, then quickly pull it away before Cozmo can tap it. If Cozmo loses or wins he’ll express his disappointment when he does lose.
Quick Tap is a fun and fast paced game that tests your reflexes to its limits. To play you put 1 cube in front of Cozmo and 1 cube in front of you. The cubes will flash in different colors, and when the cubes have matching colors the one to tap first wins.
In Explorer Mode see what Cozmo sees through his eyes. In Explorer Mode you control Cozmo using your phone and move him around and are in control.
When you wake Cozmo up (by turning him on) for the first time you’ll actually see him make movements and sounds expressing that he’s waking up.
As you play more with Cozmo he starts to learn more tricks. He’s acts a little mischievous, and he’s very competitive and cute. You’ll start to get a better idea of his personality as you interact and play games.
Additionally to playing games, this cute little robot has even more abilities. Cozmo loves playing with his cubes. He can stack them, then knock them down and flip them over. He also pounces on your fingers and can pop a wheelie!
Facial Recognition and Facial Expressions
This little character knows who you are and interacts with you. When Cozmo see’s and recognizes you he looks up and says “Woah” bringing a smile to your face. His monitor has 2 blue eyes that move around and Cozmo uses his eyes to express himself in many different ways.
Why Cozmo’s Different Than Other Toy Robots
What separates him from toy robots is that other robots don’t understand you or the world around them. If you’ve ever owned a Furby you may know how annoying and creepy they can be. You get bored fast and annoyed by Robots like that since they don’t really portray emotions effectively, and besides they’re not very cute or smart either.
Cozmo on the other hand is truly smart, lovable, and tons of fun. He has an AI technology and infrastructure coupled with the collective effort of world class engineers, a former Pixar animator, computer vision, sound engineers, and game designers.. something never done before. This robot is a first in bringing the magic of a robotic character to life. He’s something extraordinary and special.
Cozmo’s Size and What He’s Made Of
This mini-sized robot (about the size of your palm) makes it hard to believe that he’s made out of more than 300 different parts, 4 transmissions with close to 50 gears for movement, gyros, AI systems and robotics inside. What Cozmo lacks in size he makes up with all the features and smarts built within.
