The Junior Tech Academy Program uses Sphero’s robotics balls in their classes. You might have seen the new BB-8 robot from the upcoming Star Wars movie, and you might have come across that little robot in stores as well. It is currently THE hottest toy to get for Christmas. Wired Magazine has a nice article about the company behind the Sphero/BB-8 robot, and what the Star Wars license has done to their business. Thought you might be interested!
