SumoSphero :: Becky Sippert, Jake Berner, Corey Schulz

We developed an app that can control a Sphero, using an Android device’s accelerometer, to push other Spheros outside of a circle. Our app tells the Sphero to flash red when it leaves the circle. During this time, the controls are disabled, and the Sphero is not allowed to move for 5 seconds. The app […]

TODO : Becky Sippert
