Sphero Goes 2.0, Rolls Faster and Shines Brighter With Its New Body

Posted by Andrew Stevens on August 14th, 2013

Sphero 2.0 is said to be way too awesome as the little robotic ball comes rolling out with a brand-new roll-botic body! The new Sphero 2.0 is said to be faster, brighter, and smarter, and it comes with new accessories such as ramps and all-terrain nubby covers. It also comes with a new Sphero 2.0 app which allows users to unlock physical properties on their personal Sphero-bot as they advance through 20 levels of gameplay.

Ok, so it does sound pretty awesome. I WANT ONE!

“The first time I drove Sphero 2.0, I passed out,” said Ian Bernstein, co-founder of Orbotix, in a press release. "It’s true – Sphero 2.0 has been re-engineered from the ground up to give the user an entirely new gaming experience. It’s kind of like Einstein and C-3PO had a baby."

Sphero 2.0 is now available for pre-order on Brookstone.com and GoSphero.com, and will be available on August 30th, 2013 for $129.99.
