Let me introduce you to Sphero 2.0 robotic toy. This is definitely something we have on the list to buy for our kids this Christmas. This is a really cool gadget, way more than your average robot toy. Let me explain.
Meet Sphero 2.0
Last year, my husband and I had the opportunity to attend CES in Las Vegas. We were introduced to a plethora of amazing technologies – but one that stood out was Sphero. Sphero is a robotic toy that you control from your smartphone or tablet. You can play games and do tricks – all with this light-up ball.
Here is some footage from Sphero at CES:
