BOLT is Sphero’s most advanced app-enabled robotic ball to date, providing more tools to express your creative ideas, more ways to experience the power of programming, and endless potential. Program with the Sphero Edu app from nearly any mobile or desktop device, discover awesome community-created activities, or just drive and play. BOLT’s 8x8 LED light matrix allows you to program your robot to display characters, vector graphics, sensor data, or play games on the matrix itself. Dive in to storytelling with multiple bots, new games, and advanced movements. Create and customise games and learn to code by drawing on your screen, using Scratch™ blocks, or writing JavaScript text programs.


Manually aiming your Sphero is now a thing of the past. BOLT’s built-in compass allows you to automatically aim and drive your 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. Use advanced sensors to keep tabs on BOLT’s speed, acceleration, and direction, or orient and drive BOLT with the built-in compass. BOLT also features infrared communication, allowing your robot to “communicate” with other BOLTs, enabling brand new games and advanced coding tactics. Equipped with Bluetooth SMART and a durable, waterproof shell, Sphero BOLT establishes a striking new way to learn and play.


In addition to being direction and light savvy, BOLT’s 2+ hours of play time can handle your most creative projects. Connect to the Sphero Edu app to program BOLT and discover awesome activities. Plus, it’s fun to take for a spin. Simply drive BOLT and play games with the Sphero Play app. BOLT paves the way for iridescent experiences and shocking amounts of fun while learning.
