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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
