Cozmo is a small toy from Anki that was developed by a diverse team that included Ph.D. roboticists, animators and game developers, offering kids the chance to connect with an expressive bot.

As a robot, Cozmo is described as a being with a "mind of his own" that likes to explore the world based on his current mood. The smart bot boasts over 50 gears that help him to get around, a camera equipped with facial recognition software and a display that helps to give a face and emotions to the tiny toy.

On top of being able to recognize human faces, this smart bot is also able to detect dogs and cats and respond accordingly to each kind of pet.
