Sphero Robotic Ball Gaming System - White
Sphero is a revolutionary new gaming system. A world first, this 3 inch robotic ball can be controlled with a tilt, swing or touch of your smartphone or tablet. Race or roll Sphero around your home or office with Drive, Golf and other apps. Sphero can also act as an advanced controller in the palm of your hand, intuitively control games like Sphero Exile and Chromo without obstructing the on-screen action.
Share the Sphero fun and challenge your friends and family to tabletop and multiplayer games including Pass the Sphero, Tippsy and Sphero TAG (requires more than one Sphero). With over 20 apps available and more to come, you're sure to have a ball.
Race against friends on land or in water. Sphero is designed to be used almost anywhere thanks to its high-impact polycarbonate shell which protects all of the sophisticated robotic insides. With the ability to reach speeds of up to 3ft per second and a 50ft plus range, Sphero is super speedy and ready to connect and play when you launch an app. Sphero also glows in thousands of colours so you can never miss him, even in the dark!
Augmented reality apps enable you to interact with the real world, while you play in the virtual world on-screen. Sharky the Beaver is the very first app that enables you to take a virtual 3D character for a stroll around your home. Your Sphero will be brought to life as a cute and hilarious beaver called Sharky, and you can interact with the real world by throwing him virtual cupcakes to gobble up.
Packed full of advanced technology, Sphero features a sensor network, multi-axis rate gyro and accelerometer - fused with the mathematics which helped take Apollo to the Moon. Powered by lithium polymer batteries, Sphero is inductively recharged through the shell. Add to that Bluetooth-based command and control data link, over-the-air firmware updates and internally sandboxed language extensions, and Sphero is a truly intelligent ball of fun! Open API for iOS and Android enables developers from around the world to jump right in and start programming. - A.D.

Bought this for the family for Xmas and it was a highlight, Quite pleased with the tech and design. Have had issue with two of the free apps crashing and taking my phone down with it which is a pain (Galaxy S4 with Android 4.3.1). Phone then gets in a reboot loop and I have to remove the battery for some 10 mins! When it does work its great. Might be just my phone and version of Android, don't know yet but its putting me off using it again. Will try it with an older tablet as well. The ColourGrab game is great fun for up to 6 people. Would recommend this kit. Great price on IWOOT

I must say that I'm very impressed with IWOOT for my recent purchase of the Sphero Robotic Ball Gaming System. I ordered on a Friday evening very close to the cut off time for next day delivery and it was here by lunchtime! Communication was excellent, I was kept informed via email and text of every step of the journey right up until delivery, then again to confirm it had been signed for!

Good fun and laugh
I bought the Sphero - White with a bit of hesitation, but I do love my gadgets. This is so cool, I love it, and so does everyone at work. If you have a cat or a dog it's great fun, and a great game for kids or adults. Set your own rules, it also controls in water. It may be expensive but the time and quality of the product is awesome.
