DARK­SIDE SPHERO

Sphero has taken the Ol­lie, a two-wheeled cylin­dri­cal ro­bot you con­trol with an app, and given it a makeover. It per­forms the same sort of tricks as it whizzes around at up to 22km/h, but it has a new “Dark­side” black look and a some­what bad at­ti­tude ex­pressed in ways such as ques­tion­ing your nam­ing choice when you la­bel your new toy. It comes with in­door and out­door wheels and is un­de­ni­ably fun as you spin it, drift it and drive it.
