Sphero 2.0 is an app-controlled robot that changes the way we look at smart toys. Modern technology has made traditional toys a thing of the past and has resulted in children's early exposure to computers, tablets and smartphones.

While many of us grew up playing with LEGOs or Barbie's, today's kids are already well-versed in online language and mobile apps that make play-time all the more interactive. Sphero 2.0 embraces this new direction in toy manufacturing and is an app-controlled ball that changes colors, plays games and even learns tricks much like a household pet.

The versatile sphere is waterproof and pet-proof making it the perfect accessory for kids of all ages. Whether used to make playtime more fun or for educational purposes, smart toys like Sphero 2.0 are illustrating the power of app-controlled tech and augmented reality toys.
