Sphero's Rolling Dead Game
Now admittedly this isn't just for kids - well not little ones anyway - because it's all about fighting off the walking dead. We first heard about Sphero, a quirky little robotic controlled by your smart phone, at CES last year, but this time round the company has introduced a new Augmented Reality game that you can play using the device and given the abundance of zombies in pop culture at the moment a zombie fighting game seemed like the logical answer to keep people engaged. The Rolling Dead allows users to fight off zombies using the Sphero to shoot fireballs at them.
As we’ve explored so far, the annual CES tech show held in Vegas isn’t always about the latest state-of-the-art laptops or huge TVs that’ll make your eyes water, sometimes it’s the smaller, more niche products that really wow the crowds.
This year technology, quirky devices and accessories aimed primarily at children have played a bigger part in the show then ever and we’ve collected together just 12 of our favourites from the floor.
