I orded this product as a gift for a 6th grader and upon receiving it, I wanted to charge it and download the games so I can show how it works after the gift is opened. I'm not going to wrap it.

Who would have known I would have so much fun with a remote controlled device. The technology in this thing is amazing. I downloaded three apps from itunes - Sphero, Drive and Draw and Drive and subsequently paired it fairly easily via bluetooth. It's recommended you charge it first for a few hours before playing with it, I did for an hour and then was too anxious to try it out, so started to play with it. By the way the inductive charging is great, you roll the ball so the heaviest part of the ball is on the bottom (probably the robot inside) and place on the charging stand and viola, you're charging.

Sphero is the starter app that allows you to initially pair with your iPhone or any iOS device (most Android stuff too) and allows you change colors of the ball, decide how fast you want it to go and few other first time tips and tricks to get you familiar with everything. Drive allows you to, well, drive. This is incredibly fun and I found myself walking throughout the house driving this little ball around - through chairs, around tables, down hallways, even down steps and few stairs. I have few dogs and they were going nuts trying to figure this ball out. My little dog would chase it around the big dog would run from it. There's another app you can download that I believe allows you to video your dog while they chase the ball that you drive around and then you can post your videos to the internet. I'll try that this weekend. The last app I tried was Draw and Drive.

I bought this on pre-release and have to say I think people are being a little unfair about the product. I have been building my own macros on this thing, and it is very fun to program. People buy it move it back and forward and say it's rubbish. It takes practise and time to master how the ball works and the new game chromo really shows all the programmers out there what can be done with this thing. If you like gadgets and want to be part of the new wave of gadget toys buy this and start learning how it works, before sending it back, or calling it rubbish, you might just find like I have that there is more to this gadget than a ball with flashing lights that moves back and forward with an iPhone/smart phone. Buy one and give it ago and try and programming it. You might just see as I have that there is more to this little robot ball then you first thought.

My office has 3 Spheros and we love them. We have a course set up with obstacles and race them around. Also cool that new games keep coming out to extend the fun. Checked today and saw 3 new apps I'd never seen.

Just purchased Sphero 1.0 - at $75 I thought it was a great value and holiday present. Can't go wrong with a robot ball for uniqueness!

I ordered Sphero at a great price and have been extremely happy with it. I've had lots of fun driving and playing with other apps as well. A really good value and very well made!

Fun lil toy to fool around with. I Don't have any pets but I imagine this would be a great pet toy. Still, its entertaining. If I had one suggestion I'd suggest to have an autonomous mode so it just freely drives around on its own

Held out on buying my own Sphero because this is kinda expensive. My friend had one and he let me use his, but I bought one when they announced more new apps. Just played the Color Grab app - very cool as is, but probably cooler as a drinking game with friends!

We bought this as a Christmas gift for my best friend's cat, Ivy.

She is fascinated by it and chases it everywhere that Mike drives it.

It may seem extravagant but Ivy is a special cat and it gives us joy to see her chasing Sphero!

It does make a fabulous cat toy and Mike enjoys it, too!
