Make Users focus more on the robot rather than app screens
Create one app to control all Droids without confusing users.
DYNAMIC DRIVE WHEEL
Before Starwars app, traditionally Sphero made fixed drive wheels. But since users need to look at the app to tap the center of the drive wheel, we came up with a flexible drive wheel.
This new dynamic drive wheel is spawned where the user touches. Users are able to drive the droid without watching the app screen.
DIFFERENT COLOR THEME
While we were designing the app that can control multiple droids, we had to make sure letting users know which droid is connected by a just glimpse.
Entire app color is changed depending on which droid is connected. And also icons with droids is switched.
Since we were designing the app that can connect to all of Sphero's Starwars droids, we wanted to provide a user experience that can connect multiple droids and control them without confusing users.
Instead of showing droids at the same time and making the interface more complex, we only allowed showing one droid at a time and added buttons that switch the droid rapidly.
