An Apple exclusive, Limited Edition Sphero 2.0 Revealed features a custom shell and inductive charger that showcases Sphero's inner robot. Now when you control this amazingly smart—and smart looking—toy with your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch and one of more than 25 apps, you'll have a deeply mesmerizing experience.
Faster, brighter, smarter
Sphero 2.0 is entirely re-engineered to immerse you in a completely new perception of gaming. The ball incorporates advanced Sphero technology, such as speeds reaching up to seven feet per second, multicolor 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 continuously 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 across the street. Steer through homemade obstacle courses, weave between feet, and even outmaneuver your family pet. And with a multicolored LED, you can change Sphero's color to suit your mood, play in the dark, or create a team color.
Big fun in a small package
Roughly the size of a baseball, 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 full-throttle play. And Sphero charges inductively, so it uses no cables or cords.
Apps and more apps
Choose from more than 25 apps and launch a whole new world of mobile gameplay. Drive 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. And many more apps are on the way.

A very fun, simple, & unique toy
Got my Sphero from Apple a few days ago and I must say it is quite an interesting device. Let me start off by saying there are ple Got my Sphero from Apple a few days ago and I must say it is quite an interesting device. Let me start off by saying there are plenty of apps to satisfy any "driver" of Sphero. Simple driving apps all the way to augmented reality games provide multiple engaging experiences with Sphero so don't expect to get bored. I am really glad I ordered the Revealed edition of Sphero from Apple because seeing the inner workings is neat and the white paint is more than just white. It resembles a new car's paintjob in that it is almost silvery or pearly and has faint sparkles that add a lot of modern style to Sphero's robotic hardware. Its also just more aestheticly pleasing. The Sphero itself is fast and responsive. I have no trouble pairing it via Bluetooth and it has never lost the signal or had interference. Sphero is a fun toy with limitless possibilities. Its also got me out of my traditional gaming chair, making obstacle courses out of household items and unlocking the creativity of myself and the potential of Sphero. …

The only thin I picked up my sphero at the apple store 3 days ago, and I got to say its really nice it works and its a lot of fun. The only thing I'd would have really liked is if the ball would be able to fallow you around and if it came with the nubby cover included because the finish gets scratches, other than that I'm satisfied with my purchase. …

Outstanding Service and a Fun toy
I had the original sphero 1.0, purchased from the Apple Store. After a few years I had issues with the light not working on the or I had the original sphero 1.0, purchased from the Apple Store. After a few years I had issues with the light not working on the original 1.0. After several different diagnostics tests and helpful tips from the sphero team they decided it was defective and they would replace it for me. This was really above the call of customer support, they had no obligation to help me with a "legacy" product. I was even more pleasantly surprised by the replacement with an upgrade model. Top quality customer support, by Sphero.
As for the new 2.0 model. It's a bit more zippy, and has better control compared to 1.0. The new app allows you to interact and learn how to drive Sphero with challenges and missions. It's much more interactive than the original Drive app, which just lets you control the ball. I can say that my cat loves this toy. Great way to interact and play with your cat or maybe a dog whilst being rather lazy yourself. Just a few moves across the room and my cat's attention is captured for minutes. Overall I love this little robot and the various applications for it in your life; pet toy, kids toy, or learn programming aid. …
