Coming from the same company as Sphero, Ollie can move faster and better adjust to different kind of terrain than Sphero does. You can command if to run, jump, spin, drift, and flip using a Smartphone via Bluetooth. It takes rather long time before you can perfectly control it. The LED lights changes color during the run to communicate to the controller. For example, it turns red when it stops suddenly. Ollie can also be customized with all sorts of different tires and hubcaps to conquer any indoor or outdoor terrain.
