All the things you can ask Sphero Spider-Man

spider-man eyes

Anyone who is the proud ally/sidekick to Sphero Spider-Man knows that he doesn't do any of the things a spider can. He doesn't swing, jump, stick to walls, or shoot webs, but he's pretty great at keeping an eye out for intruders, telling stories, and quipping. He's no J.A.R.V.I.S., but there's a long of list of commands that Spidey will respond to... you just have to know what to say. 

The accompanying iOS and Android apps have some sample commands and questions on a few of the screens, but most of them can only be found by trying to guess what the development team at Sphero decided to implant in his little web head.

Trying to guess what to ask Sphero Spider-Man can get tiresome, so here's a list of the ones I've discovered. If you know any Sphero Spider-Man commands that aren't here, please share them in the comments and I'll update the post.
