Now is your chance to show us what you’re made of. The contest you all have been waiting for is here, and it’s called #TricksWithBalls. Get excited – this is how it’s going to go down.
Each week the Orbotix team will post our own trick video using Sphero 2.0, and each week, you get to make your own. Try to replicate ours, create something we’ve never seen before, or forget the smartphone and do something human-powered instead. Think along the lines of soccer balls and parkour-walls. We’ll award the coolest, most-voted trick a free Sphero 2.0 and Nubby cover every week. At the end of the contest, the most popular trick of them all will receive a top-secret Orbotix Trick Pack. What does it contain? One-of-a-kind ramps and special obstacles seen in the Sphero 2.0 video. You’ll literally be stealing them right off the desks of our engineers (umm, awesome).
Post your photos and videos to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #TricksWithBalls or upload directly onto the app below the main banner on our Facebook page. Submit as many tricks as you can film, and if you don’t win one week, try, try again. You’ll only be eligible to win one Sphero 2.0, but every submission will be entered to win the Orbotix Trick Pack. Go ahead, show us what you’ve got.
*Kids, you might not want to light anything on fire like we did in the Sphero 2.0 video. Don’t worry, you don’t need flames to get our attention. Check out this fan video that had us laughing for inspiration. If you’re stumped for ideas, get together with friends and see what you can come up with! All it takes is a skateboard. Oh, and balls.
