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.

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

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.

It was fun to play around with in the office for a week or two but lost its enjoyability shortly after. Ended up giving this to a co-worker's kid and from my understanding he still plays with it around the house. It's taking a good amount of abuse (him rolling it down stairs, bouncing off walls, using it in their fish pond) and is still going strong. With that said, KID approved! not so much for Adults.

I got Sphero as a Christmas gift this year. After seeing all of the product videos and ads advertising this special ball, I had to have it. When I opened the gift wrap, the product wowed me. I had never seen product packaging for a remote control vehicle like this before. It is very modern, pleasing to the eyes, and isn't some cheap Chinese junk like the other RC vehicles I've owned before.

When opening up the product, I found that it came with 6 items:
A charging cable (roughly 4 feet in length)
A wireless charging station (Elegant, not tacky, and comes with some small rubber pads on the bottom to keep it from slipping)
A Plastic Dome (I still have yet to figure out what this does, it doesn't seem to contribute to anything on the product in charging and play)
Instruction Manuel (Very easy to read)
Some laminated-like cards that gave suggestions on how to play with the ball
And of course, the ball itself.

(Scroll down for Pros and Cons) The ball was ready to go right out of the box, and I played with it for a good 45 minutes before it needed a charge. One of my favorite 'simple' things about this ball is that it charges easily. You can place the ball anyway you like, and it will automatically orient itself so that the charging pad in the ball is lined up with the charging pad in the station. No hassle! Plus, the ball emits a soft glow of color when placed in the pad, letting the user know that it has started to charge. No cords, no plugs, and no fidgeting makes this product easy to charge and use, and I was pleasantly satisfied with the operation.

When I went on the app store to download the sphero app, I found two things.

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!
