Sphero

Exhibit

As the industry leader in Connected Play, we are defining the future of fun. Founded by Ian Bernstein and Adam Wilson, passionate robotics and software engineers, we create connected toys, fusing emerging technology with the latest innovations in robotics. Unlike traditional toys, our robots and software allow us to create ever-evolving experiences u2013 changing the way people play, learn and explore. Based in Boulder, Colorado, the Sphero team takes fun very seriously. We have found that people learn about Sphero best when they get to play with it. So we have developed an event track (can vary in size but is optimal at 6' x 18') that allows for up to 6 different people to drive and play with Sphero at the same time. In the track are certain obstacles and jumps that add to the challenge. We bring with us a branded backdrop that is 8' x 20' to fit behind the track, and a TV monitor with video of Sphero and Ollie in action. In addition to the driving experience, we sometimes do on-site giveaways and live demonstrations.

Metasphere

Exhibit

Metasphere is a platform that connects hardware and software interfaces for developers of any skill level, from beginner to enterprise. Metasphere addresses the lack of flexible communication between hardware and software with instant plug and go connections in few lines of ready-made code. Metasphere brings higher level programming languages and powerful features to low level hardware, shortening the length of time and effort required to engineer new ideas from prototyping to product. We will be demonstrating the metasphere platform with one of our projects, a motorcycle remote started using an Arduino and a smart phone. The project includes a riding jacket with wearable LED's that sync with the motorcycle's turn signals and break lights. The project will highlight metasphere's realtime data capture taking statistics from the motorcycle including geospatial data, gauge outputs, and more.
