Anki Vector Update Comes Dec. 17 with More than Alexa

The Anki Vector robots get a big update.

Anki Vector is on sale for $174.99 on Amazon and arrives in time for Christmas. On Monday, Dec. 17, this robot gets much better. Anki will push out an over the air update that will give Vector access to Amazon Alexa.

Anki Vector owners can opt-in to the Amazon Alexa integration. You don't have to activate the voice assistant integration. With the Alexa feature enabled you can use the standard “Alexa” command to tap into an ever-growing number of skills, including setting reminders, calling a Lyft, adding items to their Amazon shopping cart, controlling smart home devices like lights, speakers, and thermostats, and so much more. Watch a new demo video of Vector's Alexa integration below.

Additionally, the Anki Vector update introduces new animations and interactive experience that makes Vector the most endearing and entertaining robot to hang with, including:

Holiday Cheers: Wish Vector a happy holiday or new years, and watch him deliver a festive cheer!

More Voice Commands: Now you can ask Vector to turn his volume up or down, and direct him where to go - ex: turn left, turn right, turn around, etc.

Hand Detection: Vector can now recognize hands! Next time you’re near Vector, don’t be surprised if he rolls up to your hand and gives you a little nudge. He just wants to be petted.

There is still time to get the AI packed Anki Vector robot as a Holiday gift. The Anki Vector is on sale for $174.99 instead of $249.99.
