Orbotix Gets New User: President Obama

Boulder-based Orbotix, the developer of the smartphone controlled, robotic ball, got a high profile user yesterday: President Obama. In a video released by Orbotix this morning, President Obama took a quick spin driving the Sphero robotic ball down the street in Boulder, as he headed off to speak to students at the University of Colorado. Orbotix is venture backed by Highway 12 Ventures and Foundry Ventures, and is run by Paul Berberian; the firm, which came out of TechStars, was founded by Ian Bernstein and Adam Wilson.
