Three years after Sphero 1.0 launched, the second version of the popular little ball has came into the market with more cool LED lights and interactive functions. Sphero 2.0 pairs with iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth, allowing kids to control and program their spherical robot to do some truly amazing things. The shell made of makrolon enhances the impact resistance and ensures it undamaged even falls from one meter high. Apart from being a plaything, Sphero is also a learning tool. You can download free SPRK lessons and learn the basics of programming, then dig more interesting functions of the smart robot.
