I’ve always dreamt of commanding a robot


... since childhood. Now with Sphero SPRK+ I can finally! Love how I can use Edu to program it. Once available, it’s just a matter of time before it involves into something even better!

I just wish there will be more people getting into it and Sphero can come out with more accessories! I’m sure Sphero will have a long way to roll (pun intended)

Awesome app and the sphero

Fun little app!


I haven't even explored the community side of this yet, but I'm loving just writing silly little programs for my Sphero Mini. I know it's probably designed for kids, but I'm keeping this one for myself!
