Sphero, the Israel-based data-spheres maker, announced on Thursday it is expanding its sphere home systems to include data-staying systems.
The company said it plans to launch a range of products in the next two years, including spheres that allow users to keep track of their home’s data and manage the storage of data for longer periods.
Sphero is the Israeli company behind the Sphero Cube, which is designed to store personal information, including medical and financial data, in the sphere.
Sphero is working with other companies to develop spheres that can store data in a cloud-based, on-demand platform.
Spheres also will be used to manage physical environments in houses and apartments, for example to keep records of people’s movements and locations.
A new product, Sphero Sphere, will offer a range on home and garden spheres, which will be designed to help with house cleaning, maintaining an apartment, or maintaining a shared space, according to Sphero.

“We’re not out of the woods yet,” Levy said.
“We’re in the early stages.”
Sphero announced in November that it would expand to other countries, including the United States and the European Union, to provide data-sharing services.
