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. Bruce will also demo some Augmented Reality apps for the iPad. Apps will include Layar,Spacecraft HDPopPhoto InteractiveMarvel AR, and IKEA Catalog.
