Sphero 2B (Ollie) by Sphero

Sphero (previously known as Orbotix) introduced a completely new and completely different rolling robotic toy at the 2014 International CES: Sphero 2B. Sphero has since renamed Sphero 2B as Ollie, which is retailing for $99.99. Sphero 2B is a smartphone-controlled toy with wheels. The app used to control Sphero 2B is built to let you pull off cool spin and flip tricks, and there are hundreds of trick combinations to discover. The model introduced at the 2014 International CES goes twice as fast as their previous model, and also adds a system of interchangeable parts such as tires and hubcaps. The Sphero 2B is rated to hit up to 14 mph and it is also waterproof.
