Product Information

  • Overview

    An Apple exclusive, Limited Edition Sphero 2.0 Revealed features a custom shell and inductive charger that showcases Sphero's inner robot. Control this amazingly smart - and smart looking - toy with your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch and access more than 25 apps for a mesmerising experience.

    Faster, brighter, smarter

    Sphero 2.0 is entirely re-engineered to bring you a new perception of gaming. Advanced Sphero technology provides speeds of over two metres per second, multicolour LEDs that glow brighter than ever and smarter control with AI Superdrive capabilities. Powered by induction charging, Bluetooth connection and upgraded firmware, Limited Edition Sphero 2.0 Revealed can change the way you play.

    Sphero apps create engaging, Mixed Reality gameplay

    Sphero immerses you in a new type of gameplay called Mixed Reality, in which real and virtual elements are seamlessly merged together. With several free apps available for download (and more continually being developed), Sphero provides you with plenty of gaming thrills.

    Simple, yet challenging

    Sphero is easy to learn, but challenging to master. Controlling Sphero is intuitive - just tilt, swipe a finger or swing your iOS device and Sphero responds. And your experience changes with every new app you download.

    Versatile fun up to 50 feet away

    Thanks to a reliable Bluetooth connection, control is always responsive and fluid, even at long ranges, letting you control Sphero from across the room or even across the street. Steer through homemade obstacle courses, weave between feet or outmanoeuvre your family pet. And with a multicoloured LED, you can change Sphero's colour to suit your mood, play in the dark or create a team colour.

    Big fun in a small package

    Roughly the size of a cricket ball, Sphero is compact enough to slip into a bag or jacket pocket. But thanks to its LiPo battery, a single charge delivers over an hour of play. And Sphero charges inductively, with no cables or cords.

    Apps and more apps

    Choose from more than 25 apps and launch a whole new world of mobile gameplay. Run circles around your friends with Sphero's new engine, turn your living room into a video game with augmented reality apps like The Rolling Dead and upgrade family game night with multiplayer apps like ColorGrab. You can even get a crash course in programming Sphero with MacroLab.

Got it a few days ago...Theres 25 IOS apps you can dowload to play with it! Easy to set up! And really hard resistant. Ive used it down a fight of stairs and it works! Waterproof! Few games you can play with! The modern version of a remote controlled car but a ball!

    Really great product to play with, the colours are really good and so is great for night use, me and my friends love playing with Really great product to play with, the colours are really good and so is great for night use, me and my friends love playing with the apps that come with it as well. However saying all of this I still don't think it is worth the full £100, possibly £80 would be fair. I do like the see through aspect of it as you can see the moving parts which is really interesting. Overall excellent but OP

    Interesting concept but way too expensive. Fragile (cannot deal with a drop of 20cm!) tends to lose its set up info, you have to s Interesting concept but way too expensive. Fragile (cannot deal with a drop of 20cm!) tends to lose its set up info, you have to set the rear side of the ball in order to control it. A bump or two later and its time to set it up (again)
    Control is loose and inaccurate and as a whole its not really that interesting.
    I have a highly intelligent 11 year old Daughter, speaks 3 languages and much more beside. Sphero kept her attention for just over an hour, say no more really.

    Back in its box ready for the trip back to the apple store tomorrow, thank god for the 14 day return period.

    Don't bother with this, unless your 10 or less !!!!
