2012 CES Gadget Alert: Sphero – You Don’t Need It But You WILL Want It…

Get ready for a slew of new, tortured cat videos on YouTube.  This year CES was buzzing with a bunch of different gadgets and one of them was Sphero.  Using Bluetooth, the Sphero features internal robotics that allow users to move the ball around by manipulating a virtual joystick. Users can also change the orientation to determine which side of the ball faces forward.

Sphero comes with a bunch of different apps.  Each one is sure to take hours of your time as you mindlessly torment your pet, create viral videos or just entertain yourself on a rainy day.

SpheroCamTake your Sphero viral:

Have fun with Sphero and never miss a funny moment. Use the built-in camera on your iOS or Android device to record video or take snapshots while you simultaneously drive Sphero.

Sphero DriveThe driving app built just for Sphero:

Drive Sphero with joystick, tilt, or old-school remote controls. Create challenging courses, race against friends and family, or turn out the lights for a little night racing.

Sphero GolfA totally new swing on golf:

Sphero is the ball and your phone is the club. Pick a “hole” then swing your phone or flick a finger to hit. Challenge friends to a round of office golf, create your own course at home, or venture out and make your own course practically anywhere.

Sphero Draw N’ DriveIf you can draw it, Sphero can drive it:

Use your finger to trace a shape or path on the screen and Sphero will follow it before your eyes. Just give your smartphone or tablet a shake to clear the slate.

If this seems like something you have to have, go to their site HERE for more info.
