Long Description:

Orbotix is a smart toy company that has created a robotic ball which is controlled via a smartphone or other mobile device. Applications can be built by using a simple API which requires minimal coding. Early applications include “Sumo” – where two people attempt to knock each other off of a table, “Golf” where you swipe the phone to shoot the ball at the hole, and the “Cat App” in which a users cat can earn points by interacting with the ball and competing against your friends cats. Here’s a video of the ball that has already attracted 110,000+ views. The company has other smart toys already in development that will use a similar API.
