Pros & Cons
The Sphero iOS and Android App Controlled Robotic Ball is the world’s first robotic ball you control with a tilt, tap, or touch on your Smartphone. It is quite an ingenious and fun toy to play with. You can weave in and around obstacles or feet, or just try to outrun the family pet. The experience changes with every new game app you download, and with single or multi-player games Sphero will always surprise you. The instructions are well laid out and easy to understand. This toy also makes a great gift for kids and adults. Roughly the size of a baseball, Sphero is compact enough to slip into a bag or jacket pocket.
However, some users find the ball boring and a bit difficult to learn to operate. Some users were disappointed because the ball does not work well on carpeted surfaces.
Overall, the Sphero iOS and Android App Controlled Robotic Ball is a cool gadget and fun toy. It can be controlled via Android and IOS devices and can travel for up to 50 ft with a travel speed of 3 ft per second. The colors can be changed and battery has a 1 hour lifespan for continuous fun.
