Meet Sphero Ollie – An amazing new robot from the guys at Orbotix who brought us the equally amazing Sphero 2.0. This marvel of technology is a high speed RC device that you can control via a smart phone or tablet.
Ollie can reach speeds up to 14mph and perform spins, drifts, flips and app powered tricks! Drive Sphero Ollie straight off a ramp and he will be in no trouble at all when it comes to landing, all thanks to a strong and durable polycarbonate shell. Smart sensors within the device detect its rotation and direction enabling you to keep on driving as soon as it lands! Whilst in testing, Sphero Ollie managed to fly off a small ramp and reach heights of more than six feet! Incredible!
Sphero Ollie is a cylindrical and customisable design; add tyres and hubcaps to get the most fun and best performance out of this app controlled robot. Sphero Ollie can tackle the outdoors like no other and a trip to your local skate park is a great way to bring out his full potential. The world is your playground as it can conquer any terrain you place it on. Grass, road, sand, you name it, he can handle it.
Simply connect Sphero Ollie to your iOS, Android or Windows device (please see tech specs below for compatibility) using the new Low Energy Bluetooth and control over a 30 metre range.
With built in LED lights Ollie looks like something from the future, day and night. You can even race with up to 4 other Ollies at the same time.
If that’s not enough techy goodness for you then you may be interested to know that the Sphero Ollie comes with automatic firmware updates and a programmable SDK so you can create a new way to use it!
