I received a robot called Sphero, which has the shape of a ball. Take a look at this:

Sphero SPRK+

Yup, that's Sphero. Specifically, it's a Sphero SPRK+. This Sphero can be programmed with Sphero SPRK Lightning Lab. This is how an SPRK Lightning Lab program looks like:

That program there is meant to make Sphero try to run away from you. You have to chase him when this program is running! Don't worry, there is a stop button. When I'm finished, I'll post the program on this website. When I post it, you'll be able to instantly run it thanks to the Sphero Javascript API. I have a plan, but I'll keep that a secret until I'm finished. By the way, you can make a lot of things with Sphero. You can even use Sphero as a motor for some sort of machine that you're making. Sphero is even waterproof, so you can put in a tub and play with it while you're taking a bath. Well, for that, your phone will need to be waterproof or have a waterproof case because you need a smartphone or tablet to control Sphero; and my phone isn't waterproof, so I don't always think about that situation. If you try to use Sphero around your pet, your pet will probably chase Sphero; but Sphero is also pet safe, but my parents don't want the dog messing around with Sphero. I kind of agree with them. 

If you have any questions about Sphero, you should probably see the Sphero website or contact Sphero because I'm really not a Sphero expert. If you have a question about my program, feel free to ask in the comments section or talk with me in private by emailing [email protected] (I might have to use a different email address to reply because of a few issues. ).
