New form factor brings interchangeable parts and more
Sphero has drawn a ton of attention with their little robotic balls that were controlled by Android devices, and today they have announced an addition to the family. With the Sphero 2B they have brought a bunch of changes to the device with a whole new form factor, and the ability to change various parts like the hubcaps, wheels, and tires. Having two main points of contacts the Sphero 2B is able to turn on a dime, and offers some crazy speed along with the ease of maneuverability.
In addition to the new hardware Sphero has also launched seven new applications for CES, which now brings their total up to 35 different titles. In addition to being able to play with this by yourself you can use the built in infrared technology for player vs player or multiplayer game play as well. Priced at $100 the Sphero 2B will start shipping in Fall 2014.
