I’ve always liked the idea of having a projector as in my home theater but could never justify the price. Projectors, for years, have been very expensive and often don’t deliver as good as a result as a mid to high end TV can. I do think the latter is the case, but the former is no longer the case. Prices of projectors have come down a lot over the years making them something the average person may consider when setting up with home theater.
Recently I reviewed my first smart vacuum. It was a mixed bag to say the least.

If you have been following GadgetSyrup since the beginning, you likely know that I am a huge fan of Anki and their products. I first discovered Anki when their Cozmo robot was announced and have since reviewed every product they have released. The strides they have taken with their products and the amount fun the bring to our home are amazing. Overdrive, their AI-assisted racing game is guaranteed to to deliver hours of fun. As for Cozmo, we have two, the original and the Collector’s Edition with its Liquid Metal finish Every time Cozmo comes out, the kids go wild. I’m not going to lie, so do I!
Anki has recently announced their next big product, Vector, a more power and advanced version of Cozmo, but that doesn’t mean that Cozmo is going to scrap heap! In fact, Anki has just announced a new Cozmo edition, Cozmo LE.
Anki has announced what they have referred to as “an older brother” to Cozmo. His name is Vector and based on my early impressions of him, he is going to be great!
Vector, unlike little brother Cozmo, has that “always-on” functionality and will be able to zip around on his own. No precious phone WiFi connections need to be sacrificed. Vector also has upgraded internals making him more powerful than before, which should also lead to improved battery life.
Meet the Navatics MITO, launching today on Kickstarter.
