During the wind down of E3, we were able to spend a few fleeting moments with the folks from Orbotix to talk about its latest batch of upcoming software for Sphero. If you’re unfamiliar with the gizmo, it’s essentially a Bluetooth-enabled robotic ball that can be controlled using your Android or iOS device.

The toy does have constant app development in its favor however, and the company insists that it will continue to offer free apps that open up the roller’s capabilities. Head past the break where we’ll detail two new advancements on the platform: augmented reality and advanced 3D control support.
