If You Have A Cat, You Need To Buy The Sphero [Hands-On, CES 2012]



LAS VEGAS, CES 2012 – Sphero is a fun little gadget indeed. Paired with your iPhone, you can make the Sphero roll this way and that. You can also change its color on the fly. And if you own a cat, well, just watch the video and let your imagination do the work.

The Sphero was at CES last year, but only as a rough prototype. They just started shipping in December, so if you’d like to pick one up, you can do so on Amazon or on Sphero’s website for $129.

Go get one, your kitty will think its purrr-fect.

    HA. My cats would ignore the toy and play with the box it came in!

  • Galley

    Knock $100 off that price and I’ll consider it.

  • Atienne

    no kidding. $129 ? WTF.

    What’s the point of it!  I think you would get bored after two minutes.  And $129, wow!

    Crumple up a piece of used tinfoil and throw it on the floor. Cat will bat it around for hours. Free toy.

    Just for S&G, I went to amazon and searched for sphero. It came up first obviously, but another robotic ball cam up right under it with lights and music for about 6 dollars. What the hell are those guys thinking at 129 for a friggin cat toy? I want some of what they are smoking.
