This may be a bit of a stretch, but I decided to post this here because of the possible board/party game potential, and potential with mixed-reality gaming.

This device is called a Sphero. A robot encased in a polycarbonate ball that is virtually indestructible, waterproof, etc… You control the little thing from your smartphone, or vise-versa. There’s already plenty of apps out there that you can control with a Sphero, or that let you use the Sphero in other ways (on of these apps is a party game that tests your reaction time picking up a Sphero.)

This thing looks like a crazy amount of fun, but each one comes in at around $129. Check out this video to see the ball in action on land, in the water, and even in a Golden Retriever’s mouth.
