    Sphero- Taking students from Zero to Hero...

    Occasionally you come across a piece of tech that makes you think... and then very rapidly makes you think "where can I get one?!", for team CP this has happened with the discovery of the Sphero.

    Remember using LOGO to program that pen wielding Turtle? Imagine if you will that Turtle evolved through the troublesome Teenage Years (where it picked up a penchant for martial arts and pizza), then evolved further; this is getting close to Sphero.

    You can program it
    You can create Apps for it
    You can race it
    You can augment reality
    You can control Apps with it




    The below links go into more depth as to its capabilities within education

    Having a Ball with Code- Can Sphero inspire the next generation of programmers?

    We will be running a promotion featuring these beasties shortly- stay tuned, we will also be posting videos of our capers with the Sphero (Spherical fruit based shenanigans on the horizon...).

    Please contact your account manager or Contact CP for pricing

    Is there a Logo-like programming language available for it? I'm rather thinking a giant-sized Marbel Run, with programmable sections...
