My son just loved his first generation Sphero and he was excited to see the Sphero Ollie at CES 2014. You can preorder yours today here: http://www.gosphero.com/ollie/
Sphero Ollie takes on a new form factor, drives like it’s from the future, comes with interchangeable parts like tires and hubcaps for different terrain, and will launch with accessories for advanced gameplay. Powered with AI Superdrive capabilities, Ollie is unreasonably fast and maneuverable. With only two points of contact, Ollie can turn on a dime, launch off steep inclines, and tumble unlike anything you’ve seen.
Sphero Ollie is also made for open play and is designed to inspire future inventors like Sphero’s young co-founders. And just like Sphero Original, Sphero Ollie offers awesome new ways to play. Not just with its driving, programming, and multiplayer apps, but also by inspiring imagination through a robot that is completely programmable. We’re even working to have built-in infrared technology that will offer interactive and multiplayer gameplay.
