iOS Toy Sphero Now Available For Pre-Orders
Some of you might remember seeing Sphero, a remote controlled ball toy controlled by an iOS device during CES 2011 (the Consumer Electronic Show). If you were and still are interested in purchasing one, it is finally available for pre-orders
. The toy’s been released for pre-order for a price tag of $129.99. The price is a bit on the hefty side but then again, if you want to be one of the early people hopping the bandwagon for the device, it is probably worth the money.
The ball comes with six different apps, including Sphero Drive, which is a standard remote control app; Sphero Golf, which is self-explanatory; Sphero Blox, where you can set up commands for the ball; and SpheroCam, which will give recordable access to the onboard camera. The other apps to be offered by the company include Sphero Chromo, which is a puzzle game and Sphero World, which is said to make the whole toy experience social by combing information and results with others around the world.
With the number of functions the device offers, the price seems to be fair. The company Sphero is planning on shipping as soon as December, just in time for the holiday season. If you have been waiting to try this toy out , you’ll finally have a chance to do so. If you are interested in pre-ordering, you can go directly to the Orbotix store
, and possibly from Amazon in the near future as well.
