Well, this little device is so awesome that we don't want to put it in the Geek Kids section. Besides, even if you get one for your kids, you'll end up stealing it for yourself.
Sphero is a robotic ball and unlike any other game you've seen before. It's a robotic ball gaming device that you control with a tilt, touch, or swing of your smartphone or tablet. Compatible with both iOS and Android, Sphero delivers a unique mixed-reality experience. Draw a shape and Sphero will follow the path. Control Sphero by tilting your tablet back and forth.
