Sphero the robot ball by Orbotix

It is interesting all the different type of things our analog semiconductor world can create.

Orbotix is a robot gaming system company. Launched by an entrepreneur who was involved with building 'homemade' robots since he was a child. This electrical engineer eventually found 5 million dollars to allow the company to go into full force production.

This robot is simply just a ball. Controlled by your smart phone.

You can even change the color from the application and customize your ball. The "Sphero" Balls sell for $129 a piece. I am sure it took a lot of Executive Technology Employees to produce this product!
