    Very Addictive!

    • Written by from Buckeye

    This was a hit at Christmas. All ages were engaged. The older adults could not believe that the young family members were able to play a game that looked so advanced. I heard comments like "I feel like I am at a ride at Disney World". If you can afford to, I highly suggest you get all 4 vehicles.

    Creative and original concept-super fun for all ages!

    • Written by from Deatsville

    Bought this as a last minute, extra Christmas surprise that I hoped the entire family would enjoy. Shipping was super fast and the components are well packaged in a box you can use for storage when it is not in use. Thanks to the other reviews, which I had read prior to purchasing, I understood that each car/driver must go through an orientation process that would take at least 10 minutes each. This process was painful waiting time for the kids but critical to the success of the game and those who paid attention quickly became leaders as the real races began. Once the orientation was done, my husband and I quickly took the game away from the kids and raced against each other gleefully. The kids were begging for a turn! I can see the advantage of adding additional cars to increase the competition and family togetherness.

    The cars do run out of charge quickly, but they also recharge very speedily as well. I found that the need to recharge gave me a much needed break from the action and kept me sharper "at the wheel."

    This would also be a cool and entertaining activity at work for celebrations. I foresee an annual tournament and reigning Anki Champion. In a very technology-filled Christmas, this gift received The Most Favorite Gift Award!

    Bought it for my 5 year old. Quick and easy setup, and he was able to use it with almost no assistance from me.

    Fun, intuitive...just an all around GREAT product!

    I'm just getting started with it, but it's everything I thought it would be and MORE!

    Can't wait to upgrade my vehicles further.

    Would love to see new tracks come out in the future.

    Great job Apple and Anki!

    Awesome!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    When I was kid, I watch Future Ai Formula cartoon. Now, I'm playing it.
    I bought two Anki starter kits. One for my nephew for Xmas. I guess he will like it a lot because I enjoy it a lot! The only thing which is not really perfect is the battery. It's gone too fast, like 15mins per charge. On the other hand, maybe because I enjoy it a lot makes it feel like the batter gone really fast.

    It's a blast

    It is great 'out of the box fun' - and that's just the beginning. You keep learning about more and more capabilities...the experience just gets richer and richer (more and more fun). All ages enjoy it...simply hard to put it down.

    I never played better games before. you start with a normal car race game. you grow to endless undertainment. This intelligent ideas and AI functions are very great. When you combine the Track later with google glass and I can the on the track the virtuell Informations about location of the enemy .....

    The future starts with anki

    Incredible

    • Written by from Creswell

    People were laughing when they found out my dad got these for us "kids." At 25 & 27, this is one of the coolest presents we've received!! They have been a blast and are just incredible! We've had friends and family over for the past few days and EVERYONE has thoroughly enjoyed playing with our new toys. The cars drive amazingly smooth, even on carpet. One of the best things about this product is that the car abilities can easily be upgraded as the company grows and improves their already amazing software. VERY happy with their entire line :)

    Modern Slot Cars

    • Written by from Ladera Ranch

    Got this for Christmas from my wife. All I can say is - AMAZING. My 5 year old son and I have yet to put it down. We are having so much fun playing and challenging each other. The technology of the cars and track are amazing too and make for a wonderful game play that is very addicting. I would recommend this to anyone one.

    My wife and I bought this and love it. I am a little old to enjoy it so much, but I loved it so much, my mother-in-law got me the another car for Xmas!

    As an engineer, I can really appreciate all the work that went into this, and can only imagine the iterations - but Anki nailed it. I a excited to see what the future of consumer robotics will bring. This is just a taste.

    Great fun

    • Written by from Marietta

    all eight grandkids loved it. even the five month old couldn't keep her eyes off the cars flying around the track. I like the size of the cars. thought they were about the size of match box/hot wheels, but they are bigger and quite well made.

    the fun is just beginning

    No documentation

    • Written by from Ashburn

    Where is the user manual? There are exciting features. How do they work? They use power. How much Power do the features consume? You can earn points. How do you earn them? How many do you get for the actions you take? If this is a game of strategy we are dealing with an absence of information,
    . How can you apply intelligence?

    DO NOT PURCHASE

    • Written by from Belvedere Tiburon

    Many people including myself are having serious technical problems with Anki. The main issue is that the cars spontaneously begin spinning like tops on the track and then often shoot off the track and need to be physically picked up and put back on. The company continues to tell multiple people mentioning this problem in the forums that they should clean their tracks/cars. From firsthand experience this does not appear to be a problem with the track but rather seems to be some sort of issue related to the software or sensors on the cars. Our Anki Drive has only been used twice because every time we try to play we end up having to replace cars on the track every 10 seconds or so. Obviously, this makes the game pretty much unplayable. Very cool concept but, so far, not well executed. I recommend that prospective buyers stay away until the company clarifies what is wrong and offers an actual solution.

    Excelent game but limited for use

    • Written by from Buenos Aires

    Batteries last in short time, there is no switch to power off the cars, so every time you start to play must charge the vehicles. The cable provided in the starter kit has capability to charge only 3 vehicles, so if you buy the four as I did, you can't charge them all at the same time. I can't understand why a toy with such level of technology at and expensive cost ($340 id you collect the 4 vehicles) is made so incomplete.
    With iPhone 5 you have to turn the passcode lock off, otherwise the car you are using disconnects during the race

    Major disappointment

    • Written by

    Game concept and the look are really cool cost is higher for the quality of play (or lack there of). I can not believe that folks on here are giving this game 5 stars. What destroys this from being a great game, is your cars constantly are running off the track. You are lucky if you can make it 2 laps with out them running out of bounds. All you hear from your phone is "please return car to the track".

    Not as cool as you think

    • Written by from Creston

    First off, if driving in an endless circle with no real control excites you, then it is for you. If you want to spend more time retrieving the cars, cleaning the track and charging the cars; again, this is the product for you. Not worth the 340$ whatsoever. Add another $600 for two new iPods for controls and it was not a cheap toy. Even my five year old tires of playing after a few races even if it works properly. Which is almost never. At least the iPods work. Whats interesting is that you don't see a negative review on this product anywhere on the internet other than here at the apple store. Just because it made the keynote speech doesn't mean it is any good.
    Give these cars the ability to drive around my house on a course I set up, then you might have something. As it is, the game and the four cars will be up for sale on ebay very soon. Or just gathering dust under the bed.

    Control issues

    • Written by from Marysville

    Every step was followed to the letter in initial setup and I also consider myself a very tech savoy individual in the troubleshooting aspect. I've seen a few reviews stating that their cars just keep spinning and leaving the track, this is exactly the problem we are having. We were so excited to receive and play this game and have essentially "parked" it because we can't figure out how to play for more than a minute without things going crazy. I will be sending back if I can not find a solution on a forum soon. Track clean, wheels clean, track flat, cars charged and everything still goes haywire?
