Put away the laser pointer and annoy your dog/cat with a toy that the whole family can enjoy… the Sphero. Okay, so truth is I’d probably get more entertainment out of this thing than my pets would, but we’ll keep that under wraps.
The Sphero is simply a robotic ball that rolls around on the floor and is controlled through a virtual joystiq on your smartphone. After you’re finished being easily amused with your control over a plastic ball, download the free apps and have some more fun playing Sphero-integrated games such as a side-scrolling space game and even golf.
The ball features a number of different LED colors and the battery lasts for over an hour. A cable-free induction charger is included.
