Robotic Ball Sphero Gets a New Look Ahead of Launch
Sphero, the smartphone-controlled robotic ball due out later this year, is getting a makeover.
The futuristic sphere now sports a semi-opaque white look and can be reenergized using an inductive charger, according to its maker, Boulder, Colo.-based Orbotix. The toy, which can be controlled by either an iPhone or Android device, is still targeted to sell for around $130 when it goes on sale in December.
In the meantime, the company has been working on several apps for the ball, including this kittycam program.
