In a teary all-hands meeting on Monday morning, CEO Boris Sofman told his staff they would be terminated on Wednesday and that close to 200 employees would be paid a week of severance, according to people familiar with the matter.

Farewell, Anki. It’s disappointing to see that company close. IMHO, Cozmo was a great product and it was almost mainstream, it wasn’t that hard to find one at a tech shop or even in some malls as a christmas gift.
