Peace. Joy. Robots. 28 Spheros Dance Across America [VIDEO]

Holiday traditions come in many shapes and sizes, including round. This Christmas, we wanted to put a new spin on our favorite holiday traditions from years past using new technology. To do so, we choreographed 28 Spheros to the classic sounds of Trans-Siberian Orchestra. For the past few weekends Sphero has been rolling around the biggest cities in the nation showing off his slick dance moves and spreading the holiday cheer.

How did we do it? Because Sphero is a programmable robot, we used Sphero’s SDK to sync multiple balls to perform specific macros (such as spinning around and changing colors). This formed the ultimate dance routine, and as you can see in the video, it’s quite the crowd-pleaser.

Celebrate Christmas like its 2012 with the coolest stocking stuffer around. To find out when Sphero will roll through a city near you, follow us on Facebook and Twitter @GoSphero. You can learn more about the MacroLab app for both iOS and Android here.
