iLounge Best of the Year
AWARDS 2014
By Phil Dzikiy, Editor-in-Chief
Unlike past Sphero entries, Orbotix's Ollie by Sphero ($100) is a speedy two-wheeled robot. We had lots of fun taking Ollie out and letting the bot hit top speeds, and it's great indoors, too, especially when doing tricks - a cinch using the app's control scheme. Battery life is also good: an hour of playtime on a full charge is more than enough.
Parrot's Minidrones — Jumping Sumo ($160) and Rolling Spider ($100) — each had some battery limitations, but overall, both were cool toys. We liked Rolling Spider's versatility between flying and rolling, and unsurprisingly, we loved Jumping Sumo's jumping ability. If they could last longer on a charge, they would be more compelling, particularly Rolling Spider.
