Racing toy cars with iOS 7 Video Transcript
Hi. This is Daniel Terdiman from CNET News and I'm here in San Francisco outside Moscone West where the Worldwide Developer Conference happened this morning. And one of the things we saw this morning was a demonstration of a technology called Anki. But what Anki showed on stage today was an example of something really we're talking about that brings it down to a consumer level. What we've basically got is a car racing game that happens in the physical world where each of these little cars, which is built with a combination of optical sensors, wireless chips, a micro-controller and motors, is able to interact with each other, completely independent of anything else that's going on around them. Anki impressed the crowd and really showed what the future of consumer robotics and artificial intelligence is. For now, Anki isn't telling us what they're gonna be working on in the future, but it's pretty easy to imagine a wide range of things that one could do with consumer-level robotics and artificial intelligence, whether it's games or toys. So, while we don't know what Anki will be doing in the future, Apple clearly seems to believe in them by giving them a very rare and exclusive space at the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote address. For CNET News, this is Daniel Terdiman in San Francisco.
Independent developer Anki made a splash at this year's WWDC when Apple introduced Anki Drive, an iOS car racing app centered on artificial intelligence and robotics. The San Francisco-based company is now set to release its first product, smart toy racing cars that are really mini-robots controlled by the app. CNET's Daniel Terdiman took them for a spin.
