    A very fun, simple, & unique toy

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    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.

    Wow, this special Apple Sphero looks wickedly cool! You can actually see inside the robot. Love all the games that come with it and the fact that its educational too with the MacroLab and OrbBasic apps. Really unique purchase. Super durable as well

    Fun app

    • Written by from leonia

    I purchased this Sphero because the Apple exclusive version looks absolutely amazing. You can actually see though the ball and see the mechanical insides. Aside from the looks, Sphero comes with a bunch of fun apps. I liked driving, augmented reality and the table top game - color grab. So for $100+ I've had a lot of fun.

    Really fun - great gift for any tech fan!

    Sphero makes a great gift for the tech fan in your life. It's like a remote control car... except it's a ball. It works with any iOS or Android devices (and maybe even Windows Phone). I had the original model too and this one is a LOT faster. It comes with ramps that you can jump it off of. Had mine since before Christmas and it's still fun, I particularly like that they're always updating it and coming out with new apps.

    Outstanding Service and a Fun toy

    • Written by from Cohoes

    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.
