Vector, Anki's tiny robotic home robot assistant ventured out of Kickstarter on Monday and is now on sale at Amazon and Best Buy for $250 (£250, AU$450).

He's not the most feature-packed -- yes, it's a "he" -- and is currently limited to telling you the weather, taking photos, setting timers and answering simple queries. But he's updatable via over-the-air updates that the company expects to issue on a regular basis, such as the forthcoming ability to deliver messages to a specific person using facial recognition.

And he's just so darn cute.
