Sphero is a completely new type of gaming system. It's the world's first robotic ball that you control with a tilt, touch, or swing from your smartphone or tablet. You can drive Sphero, play tabletop and multiplayer games, hold Sphero in your hand to use it as a controller for on-screen gameplay, learn basic programming, and even explore augmented reality.
Lyman FIRST Robotics is a robotics program at Lyman High School in Longwood, Florida that is motivated to teach our future engineers the basics of constructing, wiring, and programming robots. Lyman Robotics competes in FIRST competitions to teach the teams leadership, teamwork, and above all else, gracious professionalism. Lyman Robotics was founded by Karl "Skip" Brooks in 2008 with only a single FRC team and no FTC teams, Skip created the team to teach aspiring engineers about robotics.
Cubelets are magnetic blocks that can be snapped together to make an endless variety of robots with no programming and no wires. You can build robots that drive around on a tabletop, respond to light, sound, and temperature, and have surprisingly lifelike behavior. But instead of programming that behavior, you snap the cubelets together and watch the behavior emerge like with a flock of birds or a swarm of bees.
