The Sphero RVR robot makes driving, programming and customization a snap. Right out of the box, this all-terrain ’bot is drivable and programmable, packed with a diverse suite of sensors and built on Sphero’s easy-to-use Edu app. It’s also got a universal expansion port and onboard power, so users can attach and run third-party hardware like Raspberry Pi, BBC micro:bit, or Arduino. Customize it to be a home security sentry, a roving environmental sensor, a souped-up battle bot or a personalized mobile voice assistant. Basically, if you can hack it, RVR can do it.
