San Francisco-based Anki says it’s laying off its employees on Wednesday after failing to raise enough money to keep the business going.

The company said last year it’s sold more than 1.5 million products, including the -racing game Overdrive and Cozmo, a playful robotic pet. Anki introduced its newest robot, Vector, last year.
