Introducing Sphero 2.0. Now brighter, faster, and smarter than ever. The future of gaming is here, and you hold the power. Choose from over 25 apps and launch a whole new world of mobile gameplay. Drive circles around your friends with Sphero’s new engine, turn your living room into a video game with augmented reality apps like The Rolling Dead, and upgrade family game night with multiplayer apps like ColorGrab. You can even get a crash course in programming Sphero with MacroLab. That’s just the beginning. There’s a whole new world of gameplay waiting for you to discover with Sphero. What are you waiting for? Get rolling!
Acclaimed by Popular Science, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, Time, and NBC and featured as one of the year's hottest gadgets by TechCrunch, Wired, Gizmodo, Engadget, and Make magazine, Sphero offers a new type of game play for the smartphone generation.
Simple, Yet Challenging
Controlling Sphero from your mobile device is easy and intuitive, and your gameplay experience changes with every new app you download. Get ready to geek out with the smartest toy on the block.
Sphero's reliable Bluetooth connection ensures control is always responsive and fluid, even at long ranges. You will be able to steer through homemade obstacle courses, weave it between feet, and even out-maneuver your family pet.
Sphero immerses you in a new type of gameplay called mixed-reality, in which real and virtual elements are seamlessly merged together. With over 25 apps available for download and more on the way, Sphero provides you with plenty of gaming thrills. Standout apps include The Rolling Dead, in which you look through your device’s camera and watch your living room floor, driveway, or any place you choose become infested with the undead in an augmented reality twist on the zombie craze. In a mixed-reality version of golf, you create a hole, then swing your phone to putt Sphero towards the hole. Think Sphero just rolls? Think again. Hold Sphero in your hand, start up Chromo, and move Sphero to match colors and patterns as they appear on your screen.
Brighter, Faster, and Smarter than Ever
Sphero 2.0 has been completely re-engineered from the ground up to give you an entirely new gaming experience. It’s kind of like Einstein and C-3PO had a baby. Powered with new AI Superdrive capabilities, Sphero 2.0 is unreasonably fast, reaching speeds of up to seven feet per second. That’s twice as fast as the original and only slightly slower than a Lamborghini. Trust us, this thing hauls. And just like a racecar, every aspect of the internal robot has been re-configured for optimal performance, including a more efficient drivetrain and lowered center of gravity. With new multicolor LEDs, Sphero 2.0 is 3x brighter than before. You’ll need sunglasses to make sure the brilliance doesn’t blind you.
Powered by induction charging to give you over an hour of full-throttle play, Bluetooth connection, and upgraded firmware, Sphero 2.0 will change the way you play.
Compatible with Android and iOS Devices
Sphero is compatible with a variety of mobile platforms, including iOS 4.0 or greater, Android 2.2, Android 2.3.3+, and Android 3.0+.
Open API for Custom Sphero Apps
Sphero also has an Open API (application program interface) for developers, which allows virtually anyone to program new games and apps for Sphero. The API is user friendly, so you will be able to use it whether you are a seasoned developer or a novice app programmer.

The Rolling Dead
The Rolling Dead is unlike any augmented reality game you’ve ever played. Using Sphero as a fireball-shooting warrior, you must battle against virtual zombies as they spawn out of the ground. Shoot them with fireballs, collect flaming power ups, and roll away to stay alive. In this exciting twist on the zombie craze, the world becomes a video game and you choose the surroundings.
Draw N’ Drive
Use your finger to trace a shape or path on the screen and Sphero will follow it before your eyes. Just give your smartphone or tablet a shake to clear the slate. Even make Sphero change colors as it rolls by using the integrated color wheel.
Get ready to challenge your coordination and memory with the first app that lets you use Sphero as a controller. Move Sphero to match the colors on your screen for an entirely new way to challenge yourself. You can choose from six different game modes.
The most innovative golf game now has better accuracy, improved course creation, and a new practice mode. Using simple, intuitive controls, you create a “hole” and then “hit” Sphero with a flick of a finger or a swing of your smartphone. Adjust your aim with simple two-finger gestures. All that’s missing now is a caddy.
Create easy, repeatable programs and macros for Sphero. Arrange simple commands and settings in any combination you choose to let Sphero drive autonomously, follow unique patterns, and more, all while learning basic programming. Play your commands, save favorites, and even share them with friends. MacroLab makes programming Sphero easy and fun.
Get ready to test your speed with the first multiplayer tabletop game for Sphero. Sphero flashes different colors and you must pick him up at the right time to earn points. Set point goals, select levels of difficulty, and compete against friends and the clock to see who has the best reflexes. Did we mention there’s a crazy rabbit?
