Ollie, Sphero's App-Controlled Robot, Rolls Into Apple Stores Nationwide

Apple Exclusive Version Now Available

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2014) - Sphero, leaders in connected play, announced today the availability of the Apple exclusive Ollie. Featuring Cyber Yellow Ultra Tires and Flux Hubs (special hubcaps), the exclusive Ollie is available for $99 at select Apple retail stores in the United States and Canada, and the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com).

Ollie is the latest app-controlled robot from Sphero. Initially introduced as Sphero 2B at CES in January, Ollie takes connected play to the next level by combining the technology that Sphero 2.0 is known for with innovative controls and integrated gameplay for a whole new experience.

Engineered for high performance driving and tricks, Ollie can:

  • Launch over the competition at unreasonably high speeds (drives up to 14 MPH), and thanks to the tubular design, can do so with complete control and agility.
  • Execute app-powered tricks including spin, drift, jump and flip moves.
  • Connect instantly to your device via Bluetooth LE with a range of up to 100 feet.

Additionally, four free apps are currently available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; more will be added in the coming weeks to enhance the play experience.
