Sphero has recently released a new member to their robotic ball series, the SPRK+. The Gadgeteer Kid and I know the world of Sphero pretty well, having reviewed the originalsecond generation Spheros and more recently the DarkSide Ollie. The new clear plastic SPRK+ takes the experience to a new level. The SPRK+ is not only meant to be played with but programmed to do your bidding as well. The SPRK+ Lightning Lab app enables you to “create code” while learning programming along the way. The SPRK+ app enables you to program the robotic ball with simple building block commands that then enables you to see the code behind them. The visual block-based code building interface makes learning the basic principles of programming relatively easy and hopefully fun. The Sphero SPRK+ is currently available for $129.99 from sphero.com and Amazon.
