Sphero Mini App-Enabled Ball is HERE!

in: Education, Parents0 comment

Sphero Mini, the world’s smallest* app-enabled robotic ball (*that we know of), packs tons of fun into a tiny, app-enabled robot about the size of a ping pong ball. Driving. Gaming. Coding. STEM is now fun-sized!

Drive Mini using different modes with the Sphero Mini app, or just by using your face with Face Drive™, a hilarious new feature that uses your facial expressions to drive the ball.

Mini’s games are addictive as you use the ball as a controller to shoot your way through space, race a ship through a tunnel, or rotate your ball to destroy a polygon of bricks.  There are always more updates on the way, so if you’re feeling extra clever, download the Sphero EDU App and program your robot using JavaScript.

Packed with teeny tiny tech, Sphero Mini has a little gyroscope, accelerometer, and LED lights. Colourful, interchangeable shells are available, so you can easily switch one out to suit your mood. With almost an hour of play time, Sphero Mini is the next big thing.

Sphero MiNi offers great play and learn time, though does not match the durability and tech applications of the popular SPRK+. Sphero Mini is recommended for age 8 and over, and would be used best indoors on a hard surface.
