Sphero Bolt is an app-enabled robotic ball, which rolls, rotates, emits lights, and also features animations on its screen. This robot toy is designed to be a fun and useful educational tool while you control it and program it with your mobile phone or tablet.
BOLT's programmable sensors include a compass, light sensor, gyroscope, accelerometer, motor encoders, and infrared communications. Because of these advanced sensors, manually aiming your Sphero is now a thing of the past. BOLT’s built-in compass lets you automatically aim and drive your educational robot, plus you can program BOLT to follow real-world directions on a map. You can also code with the ambient light sensor that can tell if it’s light or dark, allowing for programming conditions based on brightness.
An Educational Robot with Prismatic Perfection
BOLT’s 8x8 LED light matrix allows you to program your robot using code to display characters, vector graphics, sensor data, or play games on the matrix itself. Sphero BOLT can also 'talk' to other BOLTs using 360° infrared communication. Become a storyteller using multiple robots and program advanced movements to carry out scenes. You won’t be able to take your eyes off it!
