Ready for a pet robot?

 

I was thinking about how cool it would be to have a little robot that lived on my desk a couple months ago and look what the heck was just announced…. VECTOR!

The brains behind Cozmo, Anki, are releasing a 2.0 version in October of the cute robot that could but now is tailored towards adults or anyone besides kids. The idea behind Vector is that it lives in your home and does it’s own thing. It self charges, acknowledges you, will answer questions, even fist bump. MSRP is $250 and if I had it to blow, I’d already be signed up on Kickstarter.

I’d feel guilty getting one of these because my daughter wants a Cozmo so bad, maybe we’ll both get one for the Christmas.

So what would happen if you get two of these little guys? Is swarm intelligence built in? Will they fight? Will they play? I dunno, but now I want two and a really big desk for them to live on.
