You guys joining the TeAm for the folding@home race? Gonna be fun spanking Tom's Hardware for a week, but we actually will be racing all month with internal teams, plus we've been challenged by the Hardware Canucks team for the month. Good way to help heat the house in winter if you're in the northern hemi. :)

So I saw this at Brookstone today. Thoughts:

1. I bought a Sphero a year or two ago for Christmas, it worked awesome.
2. This is much smaller. Like, very tiny. Maybe a half-inch bigger than a raquetball.
3. The head kept popping off (I think it's magnetic)
4. The wristband is like $99 extra & works like crap. The guy demoing it was having tons of problems with it.

My Sphero worked great with my iPhone's tilt sensor, so even though the wristband controller is cool, I'd stay away from it & just get the app-controlled ball itself.
