For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Anki to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of Anki's new Cozmo robots. Cozmo is an adorable little robot that's able to explore and react to the environment, play games, and interact with people in unique ways.

Priced at $179.99, Cozmo comes with a charging stand and three interactive Power Cubes that the robot can stack up, knock over, and use for games like Quick Tap and Keepaway. Cozmo rolls along on four tread-covered wheels, manipulating objects with an attached arm, while a front display lets you know just what Cozmo's feeling. Anki has designed Cozmo to have a mischievous temperament that changes over time.

Each palm-sized Cosmo develops a unique personality based on daily activities and interaction. Cozmo owners are encouraged to play games and meet a series of daily goals listed in the Cozmo app to keep Cozmo healthy and happy, and over time, Cozmo will develop new capabilities and unlock new skills, furthering what Cozmo can do.


At first, Cozmo might only be able to roll and stack cubes, but later, he'll learn to stack additional cubes and perform tricks like wheelies. Play also unlocks new games and activities, and additional content is added through app updates. There's also an open source Cozmo SDK that allows Cozmo to be connected to third-party APIs like Twitter, Hue, and IFTTT.

Cozmo is made from more than 300 parts, with four motors and over fifty gears. A 30 fps camera equipped with facial recognition capabilities allows Cozmo to recognize different people and remember interactions over time, while the front display and unique sounds add charm.


Cozmo can be purchased directly from Anki or from Amazon, but we've got one to give away. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

Due to the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, only U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older are eligible to enter. To offer feedback or get more information on the giveaway restrictions, please refer to our Site Feedback section, as that is where discussion of the rules will be redirected.

The contest will run from today (November 18) at 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time through 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time on November 25. The winner will be chosen randomly on November 25 and will be contacted by email. The winner will have 48 hours to respond and provide a shipping address before a new winner is chosen.

Anki is also planning to give away a Cozmo robot on Instagram, so make sure to follow Anki on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for more details on Cozmo and a chance to win additional giveaways.

$179.99... Lame.
Lame that you can't afford it? Or lame that it's not an extremely low priced piece of crap?

I've had one of these for a couple of weeks. It's a really really amazing piece of technology. It surprises me everyday with the little quirks and tricks it has which form an engaging personality.
If you don't win this, and can afford it, have a word with Santa
