Spider-Man on PS4 will feature alternate suits for Spidey

18 June 2017, 12:44 | Brandon Parsons

In that last category, the makers of the Sphero robotic ball, the remote control BB-8 from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", and the most recent robotic vehicle from "Cars 3" have something new, and like the Cars 3 robot, it's a very different gadget. So whether it's about deciding where stuff gets placed or how it unfolds, Spider-Man's not gonna be killing people.

The toy is capable of remembering where the story left off, so kids can jump right back into them easily. Technologically it was impressive, but that was eventually overshadowed by controversy after security researchers found the toy was using vulnerable encryption to send conversations with children to the cloud for processing. Spider-Man Sphero is better still and more exciting to play with because its voice is interactive.

What do you think, are you bothered by the choice of having opted for a white spider on the costume of this new Spider-Man? The Sphero Spider-Man toy will be able to tell the story while kids can choose what to do next. Anyone over 10-years-old will quickly find Spider-Man's jokes and random quips a little tiresome.

Thanks to a pair of LCD displays, Spider-Man's expressive eyes match those in the comic books.

THE TORIES HAVE been told that forming a government with the DUP could jeopardise the peace process in Northern Ireland . The BBC reported that a deal with the DUP was expected to be signed on Wednesday.


The interactive Spider-Man toy is available now from Sphero's online store for $149.99.

The interactive device can talk and read stories to kids and boats several interactive features.

A few weeks ago, Sphero announced its Cars 3 tie-in with their new 'Ultimate Lightning McQueen' app-controlled toy. That adds up quickly. Unlike Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, which share voice commands with the cloud to process what's being asked, all of Spider-Man's voice recognition is handled by a dedicated chip inside the toy. The toy can connect to a Wi-Fi network, but that is only for software updates and downloading additional content. The toy's microphone is also only turned on when the spider logo is glowing, so it's incapable of always listening. He said Spider-Man is only listening when the spider on his chest lights up, and the user's voice is never stored or shared.
