In October of 2018, Anki released a Kickstarter-backed product called Vector. Vector is a fun, quirky little AI robot. He is one of the only robots out there that feels truly "alive". Anki seemed to be doing well, but in May of 2019, they unexpectedly went out of business, and never released any source code. They have only promised to monitor cloud operations. The robots made by Anki before Vector relied on a smartphone's CPU power, but Vector doesn't. He relies on his own CPU power... and the servers run by Anki for voice queries and registration. Without these servers, Vector will be deaf, and new Vector owners would not be able to setup their new Vector. Project Victor is a very small, but diverse group of talented developers, who have done this kind of thing before, that want to make the Anki Vector function without these servers. We want each owner to host their own server on a Jetson Nano (maybe even a Raspberry Pi). We want to rebuild him as 100% open-source, so the community can make their own updates for him.
