General Information




GearBox is a smart toy company that has created a robotic ball which is controlled via a smartphone. Applications can be built on the smartphone via a simple API which requires minimal coding. Early applications include “Sumo” - where two people attempt to knock each other off of a table, “Golf” where you swipe the phone to shoot the ball at the hole, and “Kittens” in which users can early points by playing with their cat and causing certain interactions. Here’s a video of the ball that has already attracted 63,000+ views. The company has other smart toys already in development that will use a similar API.
