Sphero – when you’re too lazy to throw a ball

Got balls?


Most kids will at some point in their life have thrown a ball. You don’t have to be a lover or sports to appreciate the subtle aerodynamics and the science of gravity that comes into play when you launch a ball into orbit.

Of course we live in the era of bits and bytes, where kids are glued to their phones and are mind-controlled by the Internet. So it would make complete sense that a company would take the beloved ball and turn it into a robot.

Behold Sphero - the ball you can control with your mobile phone. It rolls, it glows, it freaks the crap out of your pets. But most importantly it keeps your kids busy, so I guess there’s some good in it.

Priced at $130, the little white ball certainly has endless evil possibilities, so check out the video below and then head to their online store!
