Start-up Orbotix shows off its Sphero robotic ball at CES 2011.
Before CES 2011 started, we wrote about Sphero, a robotic ball developed by Boulder, Colo., start-up Orbotix. The idea is to control the ball with your smartphone for games and other applications. It looked like a fun idea, so we decided to stop by the company's booth to have a look.
Two Sphero balls rolling around on the CES floor. One example given by Orbotix of the Sphero's use was solving a maze by rolling the Sphero around on the floor. One idea overheard at CES was developing a Bocci ball game.
