Nomination for Auggie Award: Best AR Hardware


Creator: Jon Carroll

Organization: Orbotix, Inc.



Sphero is a completely new type of gaming system. It’s the world’s first robotic ball that you control with a tilt, touch, or swing from your smartphone or tablet. You can drive Sphero, play tabletop and multiplayer games, hold Sphero in your hand to use it as a controller for on-screen gameplay, learn basic programming, and even explore augmented reality. Using Sphero as a moving augmented reality fiducial opens up entirely new realms of augmented reality gameplay. The game is no longer tied to a printed AR marker or SLAM lock, allowing the user to move freely from room to room.
