In an Article on Anki’s Vector by The Verge:

The usual stuff like timers and the weather works with Vector’s voice assistant, but it all happens with a little more whimsy. Ask it the weather, and it will turn to face you. If it’s raining, little water droplets will cover its face and it’ll get annoyed. When a timer goes off, the whole thing convulses like it’s being shaken by bells. It’s all a little bit like Wall-E, which is fitting as Pixar has been a major inspiration for the company.
