At $129.99 (according to their website) its price point seems to be a bit high for the toy market. Hopefully, some developers will come up with some more useful applications. My first thought was to stick a big "8" on it and have some fun at the local billiards hall.

A novel remote controlled game ball.With about 6 balls and 6 users a new game can be designed with a game board. More fun to the kids with this game.
