Sphero Glide, 3D Flight Simulator on KickStarter

Everyone lives new gadgets, new controllers, new technology, right? We're all geeks....well, at least most of us are. The sphero, a revolutionary new robotic ball designed by Orbotix, is the inspiration behind Sphero Glide, a 3D Flight Simulation game designed for the iOS and Android that takes users into a Unity3D environment that utilizes the sphero to create a realistic, hands-on experience not seen in any game.

From this year's Blur Conference:

The CEO at Orbotix, Paul Berberian, talks about the importance of including fun as part of innovation and the challenges that companies face trying to make tech fun for all ages.
Glide through beautiful environments from around the world while tackling a variety of fast-paced objectives. Compete against your friends in a hand-ful of competitive game modes, including: bowling, timed-circuits and stunt modes. By taking advantage of the powerful game engine, Unity3D, we have integrated real gliding physics. This allows the environment to affect the gliding, with elements such as wind and snow - proving to be the most sophisticated gliding game on the market!
