Cozmo the robot wants to be your friend

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new robot is taking toys to the next level.

Meet Cozmo. The robot was inspired by Disney-Pixar movies like WALL-E. The pint-sized buddy is programmed to play games, communicate, and appear as though he feels emotions.

You can control his actions through an app -- but his personality is a different story.

"He'll recognize your face and respond to you every time you play with him," said Boris Sofman, CEO of Anki, the company that produces Cozmo. "He's almost like a puppy where he'll have an ingrained personality and a unique relationship with everybody in the household."

The robots go on sale in October, for $179.
