That night was “Sphero soccer”. The kids and their families got to play with the Sphero robot. The Sphero’s were coupled with an iPad. You can control the Sphere using a hand control or using the gyroscope. Everyone had a great time! I tried it and it’s not the easiest to control.
The library has a Makerbot Replicator that was used to print the frames for the Spheros. I was told the main part of the frame took 10 hours to print! That’s a long time, but the kids enjoyed them.

Have you used a Sphero? If so what are your thoughts? I’d like your input on how you used them, any fun projects?
