expiredSave $42 on Sphero’s all-terrain RVR coding kit, now down to $158 (Amazon low)

Update: Amazon has now dropped the price to $158.22 shipped.

Amazon is currently offering the Sphero RVR All-Terrain Coding Robot for $160.22 shipped. Down from its $200 going rate, today’s offer saves you 20%, is $11 under our previous mention, and a new Amazon all-time low. Stepping outside of the brand’s usual design, RVR is the most programmable STEAM kit yet from Sphero. It sports a series of onboard sensors to leverage like infrared, light, and color as well as an accelerometer, and gyroscope. The package sits on a pair of all-terrain treads powered by high-torque motors. Plus, it can integrate with Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and even littleBits for additional coding fun. We found it to be an “easy to use but extremely robust programmable platform” in our hands-on review, largely agreeing with its 4.7/5 star rating from over 550 Amazon shoppers.
