Sphero Storms CES 2013 with Augmented Reality Zombies
07 Jan 2013
The biggest event of the year is back, and so is Sphero. The 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) hits Las Vegas, Nevada this week at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and Sphero is keeping the good times rolling with augmented reality zombies and more.
Beginning Tuesday, January 8th, the coolest companies from around the world will showcase their latest innovations at the annual four-day technology trade show. Under the big blue banner in the South Hall at booth number 25705, you’ll find Sphero rolling around a state of the art racetrack and demoing 20+ driving, multiplayer, tabletop, and controller apps. Gamers can race around the track, compete with other attendees, and even experience augmented reality demos every hour on the hour.
Along with flinging cupcakes in the first augmented reality app for Sphero, Sharky the Beaver, techies will be able to prepare for the zombiepocalypse at the Sphero booth. In our newest AR app for Sphero, The Rolling Dead, attendees can enter the dark side and shoot fireballs at virtual zombies. We will also be demoing several new controller games for Sphero, including Pass the Sphero, Blot, and Zombie Rollers. Game on!
Thought you’d never have the chance to get an autograph from the creator of one of the most famous Internet memes of all time? Think again. Chris Torres of Nyan Cat will be hanging out at our booth every day at 1:00 PM to shows off Sphero Nyan Cat SpaceParty and demo an augmented reality Sphero and Nyan Cat app planned for release in 2013. And in case zombies aren’t your thing, come take a seat on a giant cupcake to have your picture taken with Sharky. Follow Sharky the Beaver on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see what he’s up to at CES.
We will be showcasing Sphero’s 20+ apps and augmented reality games tonight at Pepcom’s Digital Experience, and if you won’t be stopping by the South Hall, keep an eye out for SpheroMan. He’ll be driving balls and giving out high-fives around the convention center all week long, so say “Hi” and get your picture taken with the roundest mascot around.
For fans who can’t make it to this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, stay posted on Facebook and Twitter for all things Sphero at CES 2013. For those of you coming, we can’t wait to see you there!
