Product Description

Twice as fast, three times as colourful with colours that we humans can’t even dectect! The Sphero V2 is the new and improved, most fun ball we have ever seen! At a glance it might not look like anything special, but make no mistake Sphero V2 is a revolution in the world of robotics and has wowed everyone at RED5 HQ.

This sophisticated and programmable robot is the world’s first robotic ball to be controlled by your Android and iOS device. With 38+ apps to download, you can play with friends on multiplayer games, drawing games, enjoy augmented reality and driving games, it’s even tough enough to play with your pets! Not just a tiny terrier either, Sphero V2 can handle a large bite thanks to the durable housing made from a high impact poly-carbonate shell. This shell is so strong it can even take the weight of you standing on it! Not only is it strong, but it is also waterproof too. Sphero V2 is quite happy to take a splash in the pool with you or why not try playing fetch with your pet fish!

Winner of three awards, the Sphero V2 is an incredible piece of technology that connects to your smartphone or iPhone/iPad/iPod via Bluetooth. Once connected you have a ball rolling twice as fast as the original Sphero at speeds up to 7ft per second and with a range of up to 30 metres.

To charge the ball, simply place it in the dock and by the power of cable-free induction charging, three hours will give you an hour of play. Deep inside are multiple LED’s capable of producing the 16 million plus colour combinations that will shine through the opaque shell. If you don't like the idea of your beautiful Sphero V2 being scuffed and scratched by gravel as it rolling along there are 'Nubby' covers available to buy. The Nubby covers will provide better handling in water and an extra layer of protective-ness.

Build race tracks and obstacle courses, program and hack into the internal robot to get your geek on, make your own games with the open API, track how far you’ve rolled – the possibilities are endless.


Please note this product comes supplied with a UK plug. If purchasing for use in a country outside the UK an additional adaptor/ converter may be required.

Amazing - Review by Ben white

This is one of the best toys I have! Very strong, rolled it down the stairs and it was fine. Over 25 apps now to play with you and your friends, this is also a great toy for pets as well. My cats love playing with this and chase it around the house for hours. It is also very responsive and can turn on a coin. Over all this is a great ball that you will have hours playing. Drop it a few times and know it will work after it.

Fantastic gizmo for all ages! - Review by kathrine

I bought this for my son, its much more than just a ball, - plays along with apps, its great fun, you can level up to change colours, sounds and vibration. It also makes a great toy for the cat too! Along with the nubby cover for outside, its a tough little thing! Worth the price!
