Sphero's Artificially Intelligent SPIDER-MAN Toy Looks Pretty Spectacular

Adjust Comment Print

Both The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 gave players the option to use alternative costumes and skins, for example, with the latter offering up Miles Morales' suit. Again, though, the idea is that Sphero will continuously add stories to Spider-Man's arsenal.

Spider-Man is now in development for PS4 and PS4 Pro.

Since this new Spider-Man toy uses voice commands, it's understandable that parents might worry about privacy.

Sony released an extensive gameplay demo at the end of Sony's E3 2017 press conference, and in it, a veteran Spider-Man battles with Mister Negative and his gang of Demons.

BB8 ended up being a popular toy for Sphero and now the company has announced another one, the new Sphero Spider Man Toy. "From traversing with parkour and unique environmental interactions, to new combat and cinematic blockbuster set pieces, it's Spider-Man unlike any you've played before".

Generally, Spider-Man doesn't look or act as impressive robotics-wise as Sphero's prior releases, but it still pushes the toy market forward with voice controls and a more interactive experience.

I left that demonstration full of excitement and hope for Spider-Man. Spider-Man doesn't just represent power and responsibility: He's a hero who protects a city and pledges that every time he dons his mask that nobody will die under his watch.

When not fighting bad guys, hang out and strike up some banter with Spider-Man. There's also a built-in accelerometer, so the toy can provide commentary if it detects that it's being picked up or being shaken around. The infrared sensor enables the toy to enter "guard mode" to warn users if someone enters their room.

Right behind the character's light-up eyes, there's an Android device, and all you have to do to turn the "premium rubber" doll into a talking and listening companion is click the spider on his chest.

We've come a long way when it comes to interactive toys.

If you weren't already hyped about the first Spidey game for four years, you really should be.
