The O2 SmartBall

The O2 Smart Ball!

This is a really interesting tool to use in helping education become an active role in your kids life. I was honored to test out this product for my honest review. When I received the Smart Ball I was surprised and excited to see that bright orange that was used. It sure did get Aleksus excited because she wanted to see what was in the bag. I pulled out this ball and her eyes got so big because she is in the stage where throwing balls is her favorite thing to do. She just learned how to catch and throw so I knew this would be a fun toy for her. 

Let talk a little about the O2 Smartball
(from their site)

The smart ball can be rolled, tossed and bounced, with the smart device protected safely and securely inside, while players physically interact with each other. The foam ball protects the smart device, people and surroundings allowing for a variety of movement-based games.

 Will my phone fit inside TheO SmartBall with a case?

Some thinner cases will fit inside TheO SmartBall, but with TheO SmartBall, you don’t need a case! Your phone will be securely protected when properly inserted into the ball, even from a second story fall!

What type of Games and Activity apps are available to play using TheO™ SmartBall?

Current apps use the unique features of smart devices to bring a new level of play to mobile gaming. The SmartBall comes with eight fun and free apps, which can be found on our Apps page. A wide variety of custom mobile app games are in development. They all take advantage of the unique features of smart devices such as acceleration/direction/motion sensing, sound effects, music, and voice. The SmartBall also has Bluetooth capabilities allowing TheO™ to link with additional accessories, such as Bluetooth enabled speakers. 

Where do I get the apps for TheO™?

When you purchase a ball, you receive a selection of free apps. Additional apps can be purchased from the Apple and the Android app stores. A list of our apps can be found here.

What does an IP enabled game mean?

TheO™’s experimental bowling game uses smart devices’ capabilities to provide players a true bowling experience. Players can bowl on their own ‘virtual’ bowling alley indoors or out, with realistic sound effects and game play. Players can play alone, against each other in the same room, across wireless networks, or the Internet.
