They asked me to tell you all about the new features. So, what better day to give you my honest opinions of the updated Cue Robot then a year later! There have been some updates to share with you on this amazing little robot with personality. Four personalities, actually.

One of the new updates to the app is that all of the Cue Avatars are now free. I think they used to be $5 each. Each of the personalities are distinct and have different names. There are avatars Charge, Zest, Pep and Smirk. Each of their personalities are fun in their own way. We enjoy them all but I think that Eva likes Pep the best.


Cue can do so many things. You can drive Cue around like a remote control toy. You can chat with the Cue Avatar via text using the Cue App. You can code Cue to do simple as well as complex maneuvers.
