Review: Anki Drive

The robot cars unveiled by Tim Cook at WWDC in the fall wowed everyone.

I missed the big demo.

But my friends at Two Sigma invested a bunch of money in the company along the way (first money in!) and mentioned their exploits. I was amazed! I bought one.

I played it for 10 minutes. It’s boring.

On the other hand, it’s frigging amazing! They built AI that drives robots super fast on a flat track in their race cars. Amazing! Real life! It could drive real cars I’m guessing.

But the game is just a 3D version of the 2D arcade game I played a million times in my teens. Boring. Heading for Ebay I think.
