Anki, the maker of the robot battle-car racing game Anki Drive, said it plans to launch its major upgrade, Anki Overdrive, on Sept. 20.
The San Francisco company hopes that Anki Overdrive will further convince consumers that its artificial intelligence system — the product of more than six years of research — will deliver a high-end experience for people who want more than just toy cars. The Anki Overdrive base package will debut for $150, and it will include options for customizable race tracks and up to six new cars.
The A.I. in these cars is very high end, and Anki has made it possible for its racing-car enthusiasts to spend a large amount of money to build their own dream race tracks.
