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.
