The company went bankrupt a few months ago. And because most of the functionality was cloud linked, most features will no longer work.

It's dead tech.

Are these hackable? Any point of even getting one?

Here's the statement from the company concerning product support:

"It is with a heavy heart to inform you that Anki has ceased product development and we are no longer manufacturing robots. To our partners and customers, thank you for all your support and joining us on this journey to bring robotics and AI out of research labs and into your homes.

We are taking steps to assure that customers will continue to enjoy continued use of our products. In order to provide long term support of our products, Anki has contracted our most senior leaders and hands-on engineers across all the technical areas involved in maintaining the operation and functionality in the existing products and apps. Ongoing operations for existing products typically require little to no active intervention, but we have arranged for any support in the event it does become necessary. Vector is the only product with a notable cloud component, and the contracted team is heavily staffed in that area.

Currently, we have implemented a self-serve Help Center to assist in getting the most out of your product, regretfully there are no agents available, however we are monitoring cloud operations for Anki accounts and Vector."

"We plan to solidify and communicate all the details of this plan soon."

I think you mistook Cozmo for Vector.
Vector uses cloud to share/store data, while Cozmo only needs the Cozmo App, which is available through Play Store and App Store.
https://play.google.com/store/app...o&hl=en_US
https://apps.apple.com/us/app/cozmo/id1154282030
If you are more advanced developer, Cozmo SDK is available through:
http://cozmosdk.anki.com/docs/index.html

For $45, it is a steal. Of course, depending on your needs. If you would like your kids to experience intelligent human-robot interaction, and learn coding with Scratch 3.0, this deal is a no-brainer. Used ones sell around $80 these days on ebay...

This one has a Code Lab feature, which allows users to program Cozmo's behaviors.
It uses Scratch 3.0 and has Python underneath.
It also has face/object recognition built-in...

My son uses his all the time with his iPad. All the features work just fine on this model. I enjoy playing with it every now and then myself. A steal at $45 if you can find one!

Your api access will expire and because this item was dev by a company that lost it business, give it 4-6 months and it will respond with errors
