When it was first announced, Orbotix's Sphero device came off as just a plastic ball that you roll around with a mobile app but things have sure changed. As of this writing there are a number of games that take advantage of the Sphero technology like Color Grab in which you have to pick up the ball on a designated color before your opponent, Tag and AstroBall. The most innovative is Sharky The Beaver that pushes the augmented reality envelope to grand levels with smoothness and more robust user interaction.
