Orbotix has announced Sphero 2.0 ($130), the new edition of its iOS-compatible robotic gaming ball. Sphero 2.0 boasts a new motion engine that’s twice as fast as the original Sphero, and updated multicolor LEDs make Sphero 2.0 three times brighter than its predecessor.
Sphero 2.0 also features brand new accessories — it comes with two ramps, and Nubby covers for harsher environments are sold separately. More than 25 apps now support Sphero. Sphero 2.0 will be released on Aug. 30.
