Welcome dads and today we couldn’t be more excited to show you Cozmo from monkey he’s a robot with a big brain but an even bigger personality, let’s cut to the chase we love this thing and we’re going to show you why so they say only the coolest robot ever invented that might actually be true so it’s a tiny little robot.
We’re gonna do a quick unboxing March going to speed up and we don’t want to waste too much time in this we want to show you more of Cozmo moving around animating and that’s the thing with it so much emotion in this thing it’s almost like an animated character come to life rather than a robot so feels like a pixar film kind of come to life. So here is Cozmo relatively small don’t let the tiny size fool you it’s like a supercomputer on treads a lot of really neat technology and they’re completely hidden to you as far as you know it’s just like an animated friends so really love that when they hide the technology does cool things but you don’t have to worry about it.
Showing you this kind of unboxing sake does a great job I’am in terms of put everything together the little sticker with it the quick start guide this is not it’s very technological product product but it’s not a techie product I mean 1234 you’re ready to go basically goes on this base charges up you have an app comes out starts exploring the world and you start interacting with Cozmo and that’s it so no types of complicated drivers to step and things like that showing these blocks here these are great we’re gonna show you a lot more about this this is how Cozmo interacts in place I’am so what we’re going to do I’am going to show you the power supply here in his bass bass creates a Wi-Fi network and that’s how Cozmo communicates without your phone.
When you’re running the app here’s what we’re gonna do we’re going to show you some of constant action just watching enjoy it I’am gonna stop talking listen to it watch his emotions moving around really cool and we’ll be back to go over the app it’s more stuff one quick thing i want to point out this is just Cozmo plane and exploring on his own so that’s what’s so cool about it it’s not like we’re programming this or doing it by remote just 10 planes will check it out as more exploring real essence close to the edge and reacting yeah look at Port eyes pretty awesome on his own you see the personality and Cozmo really blows this way here’s what we’re gonna do we’re gonna take you into the app and take you through a lot of the games there’s so much more about Cozmo we could talk for hours about it but we don’t want to get too crazy so we’ll finish this up and take into the app in some of the times I’am sure you did so what will happen is Cozmo decided want to play a game so we want to play a quick 10 with me so i’ll say yes and it’s going to tell us getting ready to play.
Now it’s going to tell you to put a block in front of him it’s going to turn white so we’re gonna go ahead and do that alright and then I’am going to set up a block for myself I’am gonna try to get the camera a good angle just so you guys can see the scheme’s it’s pretty fun and Cozmo expressions are great I’am going to put my block right here now we’re trying to do is going to continue on the app here trying to match colors I’am gonna do just to make it simple one color so when the colors on top of the Cozmo block Michael block match first one to tap weights it’s red you don’t want that so let me just go ahead and do one color that’s the easier one of the two and i heard how fun this is to play so okay gonna go over and tap mind to tell me I’am ready I’am ready to play so here we go nope now I don’t want to do read can tap into both read Cozmo beat me look how quick he was it right is that one nothing no one read know Oh out to get know what school here is that we played before I can talk my loose here ok we try again I don’t don’t see I got psyched out and they did ready that’s what’s your head not that one arm it’s not over yet 41 Cozmo up I all-mountain to come back here for to check out the eyes on Cozmo the personality and coming back it’s 430 it’s 44 come all the way back come back.
I have a serious praying and talking some time now so check out carcass reaction there Cozmo we’re going to do around to hear I’am gonna try to actually win something so i can show you what it does when you he loses not going to be that easy that’s what happens that kozma’s got in smarter and smarter oh I got psyched out there got that one since you play Cozmo gets better at this the first time it was pretty easy to win house now it’s really close Kozma will surpass me in no time oh I’am up three the two in this round so it’s best of three I i gotta stop talking i gotta concentrate here 33 i thought i had that they’ve been cheated 43 see how happy contact icon just one best-of-three doing a little victory dance now but just want to show you and so I you know I can’t really explain how cool it is really have to experience it when you play with Cozmo game like that and the fact that has those reactions and look it’s just playing around the block now really it for more you believe it’s real at least some type of pet or something personality so I know I said a little crazy here but there’s something about the eyes and just move kind of sucks you out even breaks it’s not like playing against the computer feels nothing like when you know you just play computer games like attack game feels like it’s really something to when you because know he sucks so on you know that personality part really takes again senior-level actually look forward to playing him there’s also another tattoo another great could be multi colors it’s even trickier so I’am really fun i could see a lot of on if kids don’t have siblings this is great husband becomes your built-in sibling will play games with you and showing out just the personality cause my hands you know the different things for help trauma kind of grabbed your finger fits in front kind of tap at it so just a lot of personality even explain see just went after me you’re not playing like a second cache modes doing stuff right which is very much like what you would expect for playing like with a cat or some type of pet like that one of the other things.
That’s what it says that up guys would help me that all this technology it’s hitting right and they don’t talk about does he have sensors here infrared sensors or obstacle avoidance or any of that stuff comes we’ll just works and that’s the way it should be like Oh trying to go through you want the technology hidden and introspective and they’re quick just want to show this so after you finish a game you get things like energy get your accuracy so tap to collect some energy their money to live and what happens is that as you collected energy and unlocking thing so you know like a standard video game like that very kind of lock and do stuff I’am gonna show Cozmo actually building a tower something here so we’ll go and see what he’s up to pick up this block here and what schools you have Cozmo built Alice cosmonaut towers a lot of personality will do different things and again you’re not programming cosmology lookout happy classes all right now we’re playing a new game this is keep ways we’re trying to do is move it closed in and then move it away i got a point there Cozmo can grab the blocks this is kind of a funny to get close there you go again another . he hooks it he’ll get the point so i’ll show you what that looks like I’am too slow getting this out of here I’am so very easy level that’s why I got oh so he got a point there i wasn’t quick enough getting it out there is a little bit a game of cat-and-mouse up my everyone here as you see a little upset because he lost that round but he does recognize me so he’s happy because he knows it’s me i want to show you something that really love about Cozmo here now he’s sleeping I’am gonna wake him up in a second when he recognizes you he actually act so I have told him who i am actually scans my face and those who is opposed to other people so what I’am gonna do is I’am gonna wake him up while behind them and you’ll see how kind of react looking around then I’am going to move over here in front you to see the back of my head but you’ll see Cozmo react as I come on come into the scene so let’s go ahead and wait Cozmo ah ok so it’s looking around now I’am gonna move over I’am gonna show you what happens when they go on the other side where cosmic can seem there it was he said my name day and got happy they’re all right so we’re gonna do now is relevant david ben has no try to recognize him so we’re gonna add another person in here so I’am holding there but we’re now going to add another person type in David’s name here what’s more I have another friend now okay now you’re going David is going to look Cozmo straight okay it’s scanning David space now there is it’s got it now so now what will happen is it will actually recognize David and will recognize me so you see cause was all excited how actually knows the difference between it’s a crew that I’am gonna go in to explore mode here which allows you to see what Cozmo seen this is pretty cool i went to explore mode alright so what happens here in explorer mode is a Cozmo actually sees is the Cozmo scene so you see seize the power Q below press then now we’re going to turn this over towards David bring your head down a little bit so cosmic for sure you move back and help people of Vega they have a good group as recognizing that is David and the turn Cozmo this way you can tell the difference I dan what’s this power cube so pretty cool there is able to my raise and lower jaws mahir able to tell the difference between us in this Explorer motu i can use the phone tilted around to control Cozmo over here can move around forward and back so i can be driving cause no so basically turning to our own little even beeps it backs up our little remote-control little robot here can tilt the head up and down some and changing the view here so I’am gonna turn around to face David and in this mode I’am gonna tilt up and there you got recognized statement so proud that explore mode shows what Cozmo snowing here now want to point out something terms of security here nothing is going out over the internet so it’s not like people now know what David looks like it’s gonna hit space when I look like Wi-Fi connection is created between your phone or your tablet and Cozmo itself but that’s it there’s no connection out to the internet so just one thing i do is i obviously as a parent you be concerned about that security where is all this going what is Kozma learning about a scan in our environment but the thing is that it is all a closed network of just within Cozmo and your phone not going out to the internets and creates its own clothes Wi-Fi network so that’s the Explorer mode and its really creative and shows you to some of the technology and Cozmo and what Cozmo able to recognize in terms of different people the power cubes computers like that i want to go through the app quickly just show you what’s here so you’ve got your different goals for the day so we’ve already taught him our name Iraq the Cozmo a quick tap and then up Cozmo wants to play keep-away it’s not something else in the upper must say no for now just wouldn’t be so kind of go through what he wants to play i’ll be upset if you don’t play with him but he has to learn that and and so we have you understand Cozmo apps here and we’ve got like me Cozmo keep away quick attack explore and then coming soon as they’ll be more stuff coming so up on top you’ve got the different things like the sparks and which you can get by doing different things with cosmic energy levels to go over here these your upgrades ok so the upgrades you can do things like let’s say we wanted Cozmo to on knock over a staff right that’s going to cost us to sparks to do that so we can go ahead and spend those two sparks no go and he will not over stack say that things here stat kunis that’s enough where roll over Q have some here we still having a lot like the wheelie one we still need let’s see where we’re going to track we only have 11 fit so one more will unlock not really my key action so you can see that and there’s our stuff you know again which is always coming soon more stuff jumping down here was just your setup here so basically active player how many days to play what games things like that so very straightforward Americans have a binder services .
Cozmo correctly includes going to show you Cozmo actually is collecting the cubes there so kind of tells you what Cozmo up to so that’s kind of cool how you like he wants to play a game or house on your finger things like that the bottom going to give you that clue of what Cozmo is up to but of course you can just look at Cozmo see what he’s doing so that’s that’s pretty straightforward and like I said you’re going to unlock more things that go through it and the more you play with Cozmo the more his personality will come out and you’ll unlock in the more things you can do with him and when you want Cozmo to sleep you’re done playing you put him in his charger and it’s going to see this will pop up to wanted to sleep leaving their to charge or tap on this to sleep and disconnects .
I will tap on that you see even the movement of his head was not sleeping moves up and down just really well animated and I think that’s really impressive beyond the robotics in which is obviously impressive just the animated movies and it’s very impressive so now we sleep on that and you can kind of go away from everything leave it all when you come back you’re going to use the app to weaken back alright this is from the side of the box almost human fun amplified play evolve high-tech not technical all perfectly said I mean this thing really kind of transcends what you’re used to in a robot because it feels real we felt bad when Cozmo want to play again we said no and he sucked away something about the way the head moves the I the sound effects just beautifully done it’s a very technical toy in terms I’am sure there’s a lot of advanced stuff and obviously has a camera in it I can sense its surroundings all that stuff but you’ll never know any of that it just seems like a man writer seems very lifelike in terms of charging time this is great only takes about 10 minutes on the charger you get one to two hours of playtime so you’re playing not charging so altogether just wasn’t really different experience we’re playing these games like the tap game doesn’t feel like we’re playing the computer feels like we’re playing a person so really impressed by it if you want to see the latest and greatest in robotics and things which really takes lamonica move and send it turn it into kind of pixar come to life and animated character that your parent with a ton of personality and I should say this will grow as you’re doing the right thing so unlock you’ll be firmware upgrades Cozmo only going to get better I’am price that’s cause a hundred seventy nine dollars so it’s not cheap so we won’t mention that but we really think that it’s something you’ve never seen before so that’s a quick look at Cozmo
