By revenue, Cozmo by Anki was recognized as one of the top-selling toys on Amazon across various countries in 2017 and now, a next-gen robot toy is being introduced as Vector by Anki.

Vector maintains a similar bulldozer-style design as the previously introduced robot, but comes in a form that's slightly larger and gray. Additionally, Vector is an advanced home robot that has the potential to help out with many average tasks.

Vector's "brain" is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 chip, which gives the autonomous bot the ability to see, hear, feel and react intelligently to its surroundings. Some of the things that Vector is able to assist with include answering questions, sharing the current weather conditions, setting a timer, taking photos and even playing card games. Due to Vector's connection to the cloud, even more features have the potential to be added to the bot in the future.
