What is Sphero?

Sphero is an amazing little ball that has a robot inside to make it the perfect machine. Sphero is controlled by an app on your mobile device or iPad. Sphero can be controlled by a regular joystick controller, told to do tasks though the preprogrammed moves, or programmed by the user to accomplish a variety of jobs.
