US President Obama Plays With Tiny Robot iPhone Ball

Obama might be preparing for a slug-match with Mitt Romney, but that doesn't mean he can't stop and tinker with Sphero. The ruler of the free world meets that little remote controller robot ball thing.

At first, the Commander in Chief is flummoxed. An iPhone is pushed in his face. "Do you want me to sign this?" The question goes unanswered. "What do you want me to do?," he asks. Three times. Finally, it's clear: our President must move this little ball around on the ground with this little virtual joystick and delight the crowd. He does so. "...Excuse me, give me some space to drive my ball". The crowd squeals, rapturous. This is why he will be re-elected. [TechCrunch]
