For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Anki to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's adorable little Vector robots, which designed to be a personal robot companions that are fun for the whole family.

Vector is an autonomous, cloud-connected robot that's eager to entertain, interact with you, and answer questions on a range of topics with the "Hey Vector" trigger word, much like Siri, Cortana, or Alexa.

Priced at $249.99, Vector is a palm-sized robot equipped with small front display that allows Vector to express his endearing personality. Vector's body is filled with a host of sensors, including an HD camera designed to let Vector see the world around him.

Vector can navigate spaces, learn what's around him, recognize people's faces and remember them, and take photographs. A four-microphone array lets him listen for questions and commands, and there are built-in touch sensors and an accelerometer that allow Vector to feel touch and detect when he's picked up.


A high-powered processor lets Vector answer your questions and process the environment around him, and he has his own unique voice and language. Vector can provide the weather, solve equations, offer up word definitions, answer pop culture questions, and more.

Vector can do tricks like wheelies or he can play with an included cube, and there's an interactive game of blackjack available. We reviewed Vector earlier this year and loved his personality. Vector isn't as smart as Siri or Alexa just yet, but he's a fun home addition that's more of a pet or a friend than a toy.

Starting in December, Alexa integration is being added to Vector, which will make the robot even more useful.

We talk about climate change and produce things like that ?
Maybe they could make it with a ventilator that sucks CO2 out of the atmosphere. It has tank treads, so maybe you could direct it to the bottom of the ocean to scoop out plastic.

Seems like the creators are referring to Vector as a he: https://www.anki.com/en-us/vector
They also say "Super smart AI", as you know AI stands for Artificial intelligence so they (Anki) shouldn't
be called this product a "He".

Marketing fluff.
But whatever.
