Sphero: Redefining Play
Sphero began the connected play revolution in 2010 by creating something unlike anything – and they have never stopped. By fusing robotic and digital technology into immersive entertainment experiences that ignite imagination and defy expectation. Optimised by data and powered by fun, these ever-evolving experiences are changing the way the world thinks about play.
Originally launched in 2011 by Orbotix, Sphero is a completely new type of game system. It’s the world’s first robotic ball that users can control from their smart phone or tablet. But that’s just the beginning, Sphero is a sophisticated and multi-functional robot.
Users can drive, play table-top and multiplayer games, hold it in their hand to use it as a controller for on-screen gameplay, learn basic programming and even play augmented reality games that are unlike anything else.
In August 2013, Sphero 2.0 was introduced. A faster, brighter, and smarter version of the original, Sphero 2.0 was completely re‐configured for an entirely new and more accurate driving experience.
Rolling at speeds of up to 7 feet per second, it’s 2x faster than the original version. With new multicolour LEDs, it’s also 3x brighter and comes with two ramps so you can catch big air right out of the box. Users can also upgrade their Sphero with the purchase of a nubby cover for ultimate off‐road capability.
Join forces with Spider-Man™ and experience the Marvel universe like never before.
This voice interactive Super Hero features hours of entertainment. Users can embark on missions where they’ll take on the city’s worst criminals and battle Spidey’s most notorious villains. Every decision they make creates a new path forward, so their unique journey will continue to evolve. Spidey’s Wi-Fi capabilities allow for new missions, games, stories, jokes, and other content updates. When not fighting bad guys, users can hang out and strike up some banter with their friendly neighborhood hero. Spidey’s reactions and signature snarky attitude are sure to keep everyone on their toes.
Built with fully animated LCD eyes and motion detection, Spider-Man is as expressive as he is perceptive. He reacts to people passing by, can be set to wake his owner up, or he can guard bedrooms to stop snooping siblings. The tech in this interactive, immersive, and intellectual Spidey empowers you to be his heroic ally.
Ultimate Lightning McQueen
Disney Pixar’s Ultimate Lightning McQueen is the top of the line racer packed with personality. With animated eyes, an animatronic mouth, and emotive suspension, experience Lightning like never before.
A seven-time Piston Cup Champion, Ultimate Lightning McQueen was born to race. Connect to the app, hit the gas, and see Lightning respond to commands with his personality on display, thanks to emotive actions and speech. Watch him lean into hairpin turns and drift like a pro.
When users are not driving and drifting with Lightning, they can sharpen their pit crew skills in Pit Stop Panic, create scripts for Lightning to perform in his next Rust-eze spot in the Acting Studio, or kick back and relax by watching Disney Pixar’s Cars with Lightning while he reacts to the movie.
With over 25 Apps now available on iOS and Android, users will never run out of ways to play. Powered by induction charging and an internal smart robot, Sphero Glows in millions of colours and is pet proof, waterproof and ready for any adventure.
