Posted Aug 14, 2013

The original Sphero robotic ball was first introduced in 2011 and now there is a new version of the device called Sphero 2.0.  Sphero 2.0 has a speed of up to 7 feet per second and it has multicolor LEDs so that it can light up in different colors.

The Sphero 2.0 supports over 25 games and apps that include educational and entertainment titles.  The Orbotix Sphero 2.0 connects through Bluetooth with inductive charging.

The Orbotix Sphero 2.0 comes with two ramps so that it can do tricks in your living room.  The Sphero Nubby covers can be bought separately, which are rubbery shells to give the ball more traction outdoors.

Sphero 2.0 is available for pre-order starting today with a price of $129.99.  It will start shipping on August 30th.
