Head below for details and pricing on the new Darkside Ollie as well as a discount on the Sphero 2.0 robotic ball:
Along with the Darkside Ollie’s new black design and higher price point, it comes with a collection of add-ons and accessories including 2 Nubby Tires, 2 Turbo Tires, 2 Prime Hubs, 2 Flux Hubs, a USB charging cable and access to the full feature set of the free control apps for iOS and Android:
Darkside Ollie is the app-controlled robot engineered for speed, programmed for tricks, and customized by you. Launch over the competition at lightspeed. Spin, drift, and flip with app-powered tricks.
It can reach speeds of up to 14 mph and can maintain a wireless Bluetooth LE connection for up to 100 feet. It has more than 1 hour of drive time on a full charge, built-in glowing LED light, and a number of deeper programming capabilities for advanced users as well.
The new Darkside bundle will run you $149.99, compared to the $99.99 price tag on the basic white model that doesn’t come with as many bells and whistles. There are additional hubs and tires available as well, which will run you $14.99 and $9.99 each, respectively. The Sphero 2.0 robotic ball recently got a price drop to match the Ollie at $99.99, but we spotted it on Amazon recently for $89.99 shipped (the current lowest price). You’ll find the launch trailer below and videos of the Ollie in action on the official YouTube page.
