Borrow me for 2 weeks
The Plainville Library's Library of Things has some cool stuff!
Driving. Gaming. Coding. Now fun-sizedSphero Mini fits a huge experience into a tiny robot the size of a ping pong ball. Aside from driving and addicting games, get the ball rolling just by using your face. Yes, you read that right. Face Drive is a crazy, first-of-its-kind feature that uses facial recognition technology to drive the ball. And thanks to the beauty of app updates, there’s always more features on the way.
Sphero Mini has a gyroscope, accelerometer, and LED lights. Colorful, interchangeable shells are available, so you can easily switch one out to suit your mood. Included with Sphero Mini are 3 traffic cones and 6 bowling pins to inspire fun right out of the box. With almost an hour of play time, Sphero Mini is the next big thing.
Borrow for 2 weeks with your library card. No holds, must be picked up and returned at the Plainville Library.
