The Sphero Robotic Ball gives a whole new meaning to playing with a ball. This geeky toy is designed to be controlled by either an iPhone or Android device, letting you roll it around without ever touching it.

Moving a ball with a phone sounds fun, but it can get boring after awhile. Thankfully, Sphero has a plan for this, offering a ton of apps to unlock the robotic ball's full potential. There's a golf app that lets you practice your putting, a camera app that lets you get a worm's eye view of the ground, an app that lets you draw a pattern that the ball will then follow and many, many more. The Sphero Robotic Ball can be seen in the video here and is available now for $130.
