Mini can be used to play different games. Use the ball as a controller to shoot your way through space, race a ship through a tunnel, or rotate your ball to destroy a polygon of bricks.

More about the Sphero Edu app

You can code the Sphero Mini with the new Sphero Edu app, which has updated its blocks canvas to be built on the Scratch open-source code base.

Scratch is the most popular block programming language in the world with over 28,000,000 users. Scratch recently made it even easier for developers like Sphero to use the Scratch code base and adapt their block programming tool for their own projects. Sphero have redesigned their blocks canvas and based it on the Scratch open-source library. Meaning you can now code with Sphero robots using Scratch via the Sphero Edu app.
