The Technomagic of Sphero

Now here is a different remote control robot.  A simple sphere that can be controlled by bluetooth.  Video with link to article.

Now if these had any sort of external sensing [seems to have just internal gyroscope and accelerometer], how about a flock [fleet?] of them to be used as remote sensors for other bots?  eyes and fingers.  At $129 each though, that would get pricey fast.

A YouTube video showing [advertising] a whole family of micro sized robots.  A few similar to some of these have been seen at the Saturday morning gatherings.  Others from the family are new [to me].
