Sphero was unveiled months ago at CES, and remote-controlled spherical object fans everywhere have been eagerly awaiting its official release ever since. Today, the company announced that final production models have just arrived.
They’ve also made a funny video (embedded below) of cats getting all befuddled by whizzing Sphero prototypes.
