Our Ultimate Holiday Wish List: Anki Cozmo

For the robotics nut on your list.

Cozmo is much more than a robotic toy for kids. Thanks to facial-recognition technology, the bot will graduate from shy to friendly with its owners, and it’s programmed to remember specifics like your favorite game. When you play games with Cozmo using the included smart blocks, it will react appropriately, even showing disappointment when it loses. Plus, Anki’s making the robot’s software available to everyone, so you can try your hand at creating additional ways for the toy to interact with its environment.
