Sphero’s Mini Soccer robot squeezes stadium-sized fun into a tiny, app-enabled robotic ball. Packed with impressive tech, Sphero Mini Soccer has a gyroscope, accelerometer and customisable LED lights. Download the Sphero Play app, cue up Kick Drive mode, and send your robot rolling with the flick of a finger. You can also tap to trap the ball or add a spin to your kick for a little extra flare.
Use the eight included cones to set up a goal, practice your ball-handling skills or challenge a friend to a game. You can also use Mini Soccer as a controller to play in-app arcade-style games — dodge and destroy asteroids, race through a tunnel or smash a polygon of bricks.
