This is huge news and we wanted all of you to be the first to know. It is now official, Digital Dream Labs owns all of Anki (*assets – patents, trademarks, data, social media, and domain)! We acquired these assets as the highest bidder from an auction.

DDL’s CEO H Jacob Hanchar wrote about plans to relaunch Cozmo, Overdrive, and potentially Vector. Hanchar said, “Cozmo was the major reason we were interested in Anki. It will pair perfectly with our PlayTray. Now we own our own robot! We are going to launch that part of the platform first.”

Support plan for Vector and Cozmo

DDL : “We will be reaching out to the 6.5 million customers Anki has, introduce ourselves, and inform them that it is our intention to continue operations and incorporate Anki’s intellectual property into our platform.” … “this acquisition becomes a glorified email list purchase that will still drive revenue.”
