Game On: Sphero Goes to CES 2012

09 Jan 2012

For anyone who loves technology, there is only one way to kick off the beginning of each year - the annual international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The event begins tomorrow, Tuesday, January 10th. For consumers, it's a conglomerate of fun tech products and gadgets. For companies, it's a four-day marathon to showcase their newest technology. And for Sphero? It’s is a chance to meet the masses!

Chromo Demo

We are excited to announce and demo two new apps – Chromo and Sphero Space Fighter. Both introduce a whole new way to play by using Sphero as a controller. In Chromo, challenge your coordination and memory by correctly matching the colors on your screen by tilting Sphero in the right direction. And in Space Fighter, use Sphero as the controller to navigate a virtual Sphero through outer-space, dodging flying meteors and gaining power-ups along the way. These mixed-reality apps are only the beginning of many exciting apps to come in the year ahead.

Sphero Space Fighter Demo

Sphero will also be making an appearance at PepCom this afternoon, beginning at 4:00 PM PST at the MGM Grand. And if you can't make it that far down Las Vegas Boulevard, you'll also see our little white robots rolling around at the AT&T Developer Summit today at 11:00 AM PST at the Palms. Fans will be racing on a track designed especially for Sphero, and it will be a show you won't want to miss.

There are lots of opportunities to meet Sphero this week in Las Vegas. We would love to introduce you, so come by the South Hall booth #25300. First-release demos as well as games of Sphero soccer, golf, and even chariot racing await. Press will also be able to compete in Sphero Space Fighter for a chance to win up to $1500 for the charity of their choice. Let the good times roll!
