Hey Vector... I have a question

You must say "I have a question" before asking any question to Vector, then wait for the blue backpack lights and the ready sound before contin­uing:

Hey Vector...
> pause >
I have a questi­on...
> pause > blue light + ding sound >

User regist­ration

1. Say “Hey Vector”
2. Wait for the ding sound and his Back Light to turn blue
3. Say your name (“My name is Ash”)

Vector will confirm he understood by showing a yellow light and pronounce your name.
If Vector thinks he recognizes you, he will ask, “Have we met before ?”

- If you answer no, he continues scanning and enrolling your face
- If you answer yes, he says, “I already know a <na­me>.”

Cozmo & Anki: a new future

Anki, the company that created Cozmo and Vector, went bankrupt in April 2019 and shut down the following month. In December 2019, Anki assets were acquired by Digital Dream Labs.
Special thanks to the members of the OFFICIAL DIGITAL DREAM LABS Vector Owners Facebook group for their feedback and sugges­tions.
