Sphero – Programming fun with the Spherical Robot

Sphero Collage

Tech toys are becoming hugely popular! The Sphero 2.0 claims to be the “app controlled ball that does it all.” To put this assertion to the test, we had Sphero draw its own logo. We shot a video of the Sphero responding to our programmed commands and applied an echo effect to show the path the ball took. The project displays long-exposure shots which we took by leaving the camera’s shutter open. It wasn’t easy, but we had fun pulling it off with our Bluetooth smartphones! Click here to read our Sphero review

This is what happened!
