The possibilities for gameplay with Sphero are endless. For the first time, the ball
has become a brainy robot that can be controlled in a variety of ways. Sphero is
changing the way we think about and enjoy mixed-reality gameplay. With seven
apps currently available, our team has only scratched the surface of Sphero’s
possibilities. That’s where you come in.

Because Sphero is so versatile, there will be several ways to win during each
hackathon. Developers can compete in a racing, a micro lab challenge,
and for the best driving app as well as the best controller app. Winnings span from a
free Sphero to two grand prizes – a whopping $5,000 each!

In each city, the festivities kick off on Friday evening with a party. Happy hour meets
gaming as our team introduces you to Sphero and a MacroLab challenge, as well
as some old fashioned Sphero racing. Saturday morning we host a more thorough
introduction to Sphero, and get you started with our SDK. Then the floor opens to
the developers, and the hacking gets cracking! Two weeks later, the best apps are
chosen and the winners announced. You get to own what you create, but our hope is
you submit the app and show off your work.
