Last year we shared our love for Sphero and Ollie. Well, this year Ollie has been fighting for the Darkside and we couldn’t wait to play!
Notice how dirty his wheels are already? Lol! Darkside Ollie is probably our favorite toy right now and almost everyone that comes over wants to play with him too. We love that you can adjust his handling, speed & acceleration on the phone app.
I suggested the boys make a maze to practice adjusting the settings to see what does what. The app knows whether you’re connecting to Ollie or Darkside Ollie and adjusts the colors of the app accordingly. The boys thought that was awesome!
“Darkside rolls at speeds of up to 14 mph and connects instantly to your device via Bluetooth SMART with a range of up to 100 feet. Turn on a dime with Nubby Tires or take them off to drift like a street racer. Darkside also comes with a bonus set of Turbo Tires and Flux Hubs so you can customize performance. – See more at: http://store.sphero.com/products/darkside#sthash.plLP4lWL.dpuf”
Maybe we’ll work on a video of these in action? Either way, you’ll definitely want to add this to your Holiday wish list.
