Sphero has launched latest app-enabled robotic ball, Sphero BOLT, building upon the company’s suite of education facing products.
Sphero BOLT retails for $249.99 and we have one to give away, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and in two sentences or less tell us why you should have it. The first to make us laugh wins.
Sphero BOLT’s capabilities empower users to dive deeper into the world of STEAM learning. In addition to the robot itself, Sphero BOLT is accompanied by the Sphero Edu app. The app provides educators, parents, and kids alike with an ecosystem to share curriculum, projects, and learnings.
Sphero BOLT introduces five new features that enable even more creative learning and gameplay:
“With BOLT, we’ve created an experience scaleable for all ages that embraces the knowledge that play is a powerful teacher,” says Paul Berberian, CEO of Sphero. “Our goal for this product, as well as all future Sphero products, is to provide consumers with an opportunity to learn while having fun.”
Sphero BOLT comes to life through the existing Sphero Edu app for learning and coding on iOS, Android, Kindle, Mac, Windows, and Chrome, as well as the new Sphero Play app for unique drive modes and games on iOS and Android. Sphero BOLT is also integrated with Swift Playgrounds, Apple’s coding app available on iOS.
