Introducing the Orbotix Sphero! Sphero is the world's first robotic ball gaming system that you control with a tilt, touch, or swing from your smartphone or tablet. Roll it, race it, or challenge yourself with Drive, Golf and more. Your experience changes with every new app. You can even use Sphero as a controller for on-screen gameplay. Single and multi-player apps let you engage in the virtual world and play in the real one. It’s the ball evolved.
Using Bluetooth Technology, the Sphero is compatible with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Android device and can be played as quickly as you can download a gaming app. The Robotic ball has over a 50 foot range and can reach speeds of up to 3 feet per second. It has precise control thanks to the internal guidance system including gyro and accelerometer.
100% summer compatible, from the beach to the bonfire - Sphero is ready for any adventure. Take your gaming experience outside and race it down the boardwalk, through the sand, even through water! Play handheld and multiplayer games around the campfire, compete in a game of TAG at the park, or take your Sphero for a swim in the pool.
How much tech can you pack in a 3 inch sphere? Here's the scientific bit - Start with a sensor network – multi-axis rate gyro and accelerometer – fused together with the same kind of math that took Apollo to the Moon. Power it with lithium polymer batteries that are inductively recharged through the shell and add a Bluetooth-based command and control data link. Finally, mix in over-the-air firmware updates and internally sandboxed language extensions and you have a true robot that is an intelligent component of a smartphone app-based gaming, learning, and human-machine interaction system. Driving Sphero from the central app is just the start. An open API for iOS and Android invites developers around the world to dive right in…Oh, and Sphero is just fun.
Over 20+ apps are available for download, through iTunes Appstore and Android Marketplace, including:
Construction: Inside: Orbotix Smart Robot Outside: Opaque high-impact polycarbonate shell; Dimensions: Size: 74mm diameter
