If you've got a hundred dollars to burn and love awesome technological toys, J&R has a deal for you. The self-described "gadget wonderland" is offering the Sphero ball for $99.99, a $30 drop from its normal price of $129.99.

For those unaware, the Sphero is a robotic sphere than can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet. The concept sounds simplistic, but all it takes is a bit of imagination to make Sphero an awesome gadget. Readers may remember Sphero's holiday display in New York last year:

 

What's more, Sphero has an open API, allowing developers to make their own Sphero apps. If making your own app doesn't sound like fun, there are already plenty to choose from, including Orbotix's Sphero controller, Sphero Draw N' Drive, Pet, ColorGrab, and lots more.

There's no denying Sphero as one of the more unique, fun gadgets we've seen that are compatible with Android. If you've been eyeing the robotic orb, or just want something new to play with, hit the link below to take advantage of the deal.
