Sphero's connected toys have been labelled as innovative, cool and trendy. It was their Force Band nevertheless that grabbed our attention. So, after patiently waiting for the hype to settle around it, we decided to take it for a test drive - and it works wonders!

The gadget and its functionality has one taking jumps rather than steps forward. Using the concept of the "Force" to control a robotic object quickly fast tracks the imagination into the future. So now imagining what can be, what is possible and how the world can develop has become a logical reality and not just something enclosed within the sectors of Hollywood.

The motorsport industry is historically one of the cornerstones of the world’s sports market. Fast paced and energised, whether be it on two wheels, four wheels, on land, air or sea, it has always gathered a global following of enthusiastic fans.

When the FIA Formula E Championship was added to this buzzing sports sector, there was a sudden pause. The pause however, was caused by more of an inquisitive approach -  after all the historical hustle and bustle of loud roaring engines, popping exhausts and bursting cylinders, seemed to have been shelved for a more quieter and clinical approach. Formula E was the alternative, it brought about a futurist finesse that was sleek, clear and is indeed attractively electrifying....

Paving the way for the future of motorsport is a job description that Formula E reluctantly had to undertake. Though a pressurising role, it is a much needed one. With the use of electric-powered racing cars as its offering, it proves the theory of the benefits and effects of alternative energy. And by doing so, a giant advertisement for the future of racing was sparked!
