Orbotix Launches Robotic Ball Tricks Contest

Are you a fan of the robotic balls of Boulder-based Orbotix? The startup, which makes the popular Sphero robotics balls, said it is launching a new contest to provide awards to people who create the "coolest, most-voted" tricks on the site. Sphero fans, however, might be hard pressed to beat the Sphero jumping through a flaming hoop trick that the company featured in its Sphero 2.0 launch video.
