These will eventually probably not work, as Anki is folding, but I have had my eye on them since they were on the Apple Keynote. I almost pulled the trigger when Toys R Us was going out, glad I waited. For $50 I can relive the slot car sets my dad would let me use as a kid. Fun little set. I ended up spotting these in Target earlier today.

Once Anki closes, does this mean these sets are useless?

Probably depends on your phone.

I dnt think you need Updates from Anki ..... Anki doesn't load SW to the cars.

DL the app, then set up.

If you get a new phone, the app might not work with the OS of that phone.

The batteries in the cars will probably die before the app is incompatible.

This makes the 4th of these sets I bought in the last half year ..... I have no fears of this being a dead toy in the future, aside from batteries.

Yes, it comes with a charger for each car to charge simultaneously.

This set comes with 2 cars ..... more cars can be purchased, and all "Overdrive" cars and trucks work on both types of sets.

Incidentally, back to this "No more Anki" "problem", any SW should have patches, since there are vulnerabilities exploited by hackers ..... if that phone/device goes on the internet.

That Anki is no longer supporting this product doesn't mean the cars stop dead ..... Anki's Vector robots (we've got 2) are dependant on Anki servers, they must have constant WiFi for their functionality, otherwise they're "dead".

If you have only 1 smart phone, you can control only 1 car.

I put the apps on older tablets and phones that do not go on the Net ..... too old and slow.

Also: you'll need a WiFi router for this set, which acts as a relay ..... your app/device talks to the cars through the WiFi router.

I live in Atlanta, GA and every Target I've been to has not only the original Anki Overdrive set on sale for $48.98, but they also have the Fast and Furious sets for $50.98, the Semi race trucks for 17.98, extra cars for 15.98, and the ramp for jumps at 8.98. I know these prices because that's what I paid for my set.
