LG's new Rolling Ball works with the company's new G5 smartphone and turns it into a remote that can control the Rolling Ball from anywhere in the world. It features an on-board camera that records footage, but it's also a speaker that lets you speak through it - like, to your pet. LG's Rolling Ball also includes an IR blaster that lets you turn your TV on, from your smartphone, through the Rolling Ball.

The hardware powering the LG Rolling Ball are found in the center stripe, with the two large hemispheres are the engine that turns the robot in any direction. LG isn't talking about the price on the Rolling Ball just yet, but we should find out in the near future.
