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.
