CES 2013: Orbotix Sphero Demo and Sharky the Beaver (Augmented Reality) Demo

Sharky the Beaver

So last year at CES 2012, Geoff and I saw the Sphero demoed. The device is a remote control sphere that’s controlled with your iOS device. We also saw the Sphero used as a controller for an Asteroids like iOS game. This year, I saw both those things demoed again, but also a cool augmented reality type game. Sharky the Beaver¬†allows you to control the Sphero ball as you’d expect with your iOS device except it also uses the camera of your device. When you look at the viewfinder on your screen, instead of just seeing the Sphero ball itself, you’ll see Sharky. By moving the Sphero ball around, Sharky will walk around too. Check out the video above to see Sharky in action.
