Sphero is a household name these days thanks to its work to create the remote controlled BB-8 Droid that took the world by storm a couple of Christmases ago, and the company is once again working its magic in readiness for the cinematic release of Cars 3.
Sphero has officially announced that its Star Wars-inspired 'Force Band', which was previously teased during this year's Consumer Electronics Show back in January, will be available for purchase this coming September 30, along with a special edition version of BB-8 Droid toy.
Taiwanese technology researchers at PVD+ have created a technology that allows the use of Apple Watch and gestures to control drones and devices such as Sphero robots and home automation rigs.
If you loved Orbotix's Sphero Robot Ball then the likelihood is that you'll be positively thrilled with their latest introduction at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The originally released Sphero was a quirky, fun and innovative smartphone controlled robotic sphere that provided hours of fun and entertainment. The latest edition to the Orbotix family is the Sphero 2B, a new cylinder shaped toy that takes on a slightly different form factor but still manages to pack in all of the fun and innocent glee that you would imagine a Sphero device would have thanks to its "mad speed" and "sick tricks".
