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.
