A while ago we introduced you to Vector – arguably the most adorable robot companion in recent times, who was available only for pre-order on Kickstarter back in August.
Now the Kickstarter campaign has raised no less than $2 million and has made Vector a dream come true for Anki, the company who manufactures it. The robot will even have Alexa integration by the end of 2018 which will mean more questions it can answer and more information it will be able to deliver.

Vector comes with its own very special perks and quirks, such as the most expressive digital face you’ve ever seen and an adorable personality – while you’re busy around the house or at work, Vector will keep itself occupied by exploring the house and just messing about without bothering anyone else.
It also has a front-facing camera that will help it recognize you and a four-microphone array so it can hear you issue voice commands from anywhere. It will also charge itself by going to the charging port whenever it realizes its battery is running low.
Anki plans to further develop Vector via over-the-air updates and add features like contacts messages, pet detection, music recognition, smart home integration and more.
