The folks over at the Sphero booth had the ball rolling all week at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week. Demonstrating their unique spherical game controller on a closed track, attendees were able to race the cute little guys around and round, controlling the device’s motion with iPads and iPhones.
Now with twenty-plus fun apps available for Sphero, Orbotix, the “passionate robotic engineers” of the cue-ball-looking gaming device, is optimistic for what the future has in store for their augmented reality device. Sphero apps are open-source, meaning developers can freely create and distribute their software applications built specifically for the rolling bot. To date, all of them are available from the product’s website.
This video was filmed on Thursday at the young company’s CES booth, located in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth number 25705. (My apologies for my unsteady hand.)
