Orbotix

Maker - Adam Wilson

Orbotix

Maker Story

Robot Nation

Robots are on the rise. But, you may not even realize it because unlike in the movies, they aren't built in the likeness of human beings.

Meet Sphero & Ollie — programmable robots small enough to hold in your hand but packed with more fun and interactive possibilities than you can imagine. Controlled by your smartphone or tablet, Sphero 2.0 is compatible with over 20 games and apps (including one that introduces kids to the basics of programming, robotics, and math). Ollie is part of the next generation of robots from Orbotix. It offers both speed and easy manueverability.

Right out of the box, these robots can light up, change colors, twirl, and roll. They are waterproof and so durable even your dog can play with them. But Fido will have to wait his turn once the kids figure out Sphero 2.0 can be transformed into a joystick or used to enter the world of augmented reality gaming.

Invented by robotocists Ian Bernstein and Adam Wilson, Sphero & Ollie weren't only designed with play in mind. They are also a great way to teach the next generation about programming and the future of technology. Robots are coming in all shapes and sizes, even spheres.
