Sphero Ollie Darkside is an app-controlled robot that reaches 14 mph speeds: $56.50 (Reg. $70+)


Amazon is offering the Sphero Ollie Darkside App Controlled Robot for $56.70 shipped. That’s $13 off the going rate found at retailers like Bed Bath & Beyond and is one of the lowest prices we have tracked. With a top speed of 14 mph, this robot is a blast to control. A Bluetooth SMART instant connection gives it a range of 100 feet. Drivers can expect up to an hour of battery on a single charge. Rated 4+ stars from over 75% of reviewers.

A fun alternative is Sphero’s Mini Robot Ball for $45. It’s controlled via an app like Oliie, but isn’t quite ready for off-road activities that its sibling can handle. Using the Sphero Edu app, drivers are able to control the ball with JavaScript, making for both a fun and educational experience. Rated 4.1/5 stars.

Sphero Ollie Darkside Robot features:

  • App-controlled robot with a tough polycarbonate shell that will travel up to 6.3 m/s (20.6 f/s, 14 mph)
  • Bluetooth SMART instant connection (100 foot range)
  • USB charging cable provides over an hour of gameplay
  • 2 Nubby Tires, 2 Turbo Tires, 2 Prime Hubs, 2 Flux Hubs for all terrain options and tricks
