voxeljs based Sphero simulator with hardware connection capability (although not available on the deployed version).
Two parts to the project. First the simulator is based around voxeljs and (will) emulates the spheron module API.
The second part, demonstrated in the project video show the actual hardware moving in tandem to the voxeljs world controller. The screencast video was lost, so until I have time to record another demo just the hardware portion is visible.
! WATCH THE VIDEO ! It will make more sense.
Check out the voxel world! Marvel at the craftsmanship of the Sphero. Use the locally sourced, artisanally crafted controls to roll the Sphero around. If you watch the video at the same time you can also pretend to be driving the real thing!

The Spheron portion of was very small. The major portion of coding was putting the bot into voxeljs. The real world usage is using sensor feedback from the robot to lay out maps in voxeljs. While sounding mildly silly when done with such a simple robot, the concept Similtanius Location And Mapping is a very serious field of study.
Maybe I need to detail my description better. But the voxel-sphero is that emulator/simulator. This demo is just lacking the hardware control.
