We have seen all sorts of robots in the past, but today we have something that you haven’t seen before – a robotic ball that is controlled remotely via smartphone or tablet.
This robotic ball is called Sphero and it can be controlled remotely using iOS or Android device via Bluetooth connection. Sphero is big as baseball, and you can easily put in your pocket or jacket due to its small size, and it is made from impact-resistant polycarbonate shell, so you won’t damage it if you’re using it on a rough outdoor surface. In addition, Sphero comes with customizable color LEDs, so it can glow in several different colors in the dark, and it is recharged with an induction charger, however, we don’t know how long can Sphero last on a single charge.
Sphero is an interesting robotic ball, and in order to use it, you’ll need a iOS or Android device and one of several free apps for it. Sphero is currently priced at $129.99.
