Ollie – The Future of App-Enabled Driving

In this electronic age, we are determined to prove that an electric motor can capture the thrill of speed.

We built Ollie for those who would rather lead than follow.

This machine tops out at 14 MPH – faster than you can run. Equip Ollie with grip tires for off-road traction or remove them to drift on smooth surfaces. Powered by Bluetooth Smart, this robot features a 30-meter range and over an hour of drive-time on a single charge. And this app gives you the power to control everything about Ollie – speed, acceleration, turn radius, and glowing LED colors.

What’s New:
Color: Make Ollie your own by customizing the glowing LED color – or pick a flashing LED color pattern.
Demo Mode: Ollie gives you a short demonstration of its abilities – stand back!
Drifting: Drift Mode has been rebuilt and refined to give you even more control when you’re out of control.
Idle Animations: After a period of inactivity, Ollie gets a mind of its own. You have been warned.
Darkside Mode: For use with Darkside Ollie (Black Version) – Darkside has a personality that won’t be tamed.

EASY TO USE, CHALLENGING TO MASTER
Launch the app, then touch your Bluetooth Smart enabled device to your Ollie. Follow the on-screen tutorials and learn the basics of how to aim and drive your Ollie. Driving like a pro takes a little patience, but so does anything else worth doing.

SUPER TOUGH ON THE OUTSIDE
Tackle the toughest terrain with total confidence. Ollie’s polycarbonate shell protects the electric motor, while the cutting-edge design repels water. This rough-and-tumble robot is built to take on anything that stands in the way.

WICKEDLY SMART ON THE INSIDE
Ollie is an electrically propelled computer with onboard intelligence that gives you real-time feedback on tricks. You can also program Ollie using the Sphero EDU app. If you leave this robot idle for too long, it may get a mind of its own.

GRAVITY-DEFYING TRICKS
Swipe, tap, or hold the gesture pad to make Ollie perform different tricks. With hundreds of trick combos to discover and master, you’ll constantly be challenged to push your skills.

DRIVE YOUR OWN WAY
You have the power to adjust Ollie's speed, handling and acceleration. With the option to use Drift Wheels or Grip Tires, you control your driving experience from start to finish.

MODES
Your app experience will change depending on whether you have Ollie (White) or Darkside Ollie (Black).

STUNT CAM
• Thanks to everyone that uploaded and viewed videos in Stunt Cam. There are some great drivers and amazing videographers out there. We received some awesome feedback and will take it all into consideration while we build out the future of Ollie. For now, we are removing the feature to put it back in the oven for further development.

In the meantime, all those wonderful videos that were created can be enjoyed on our YouTube channel - www.youtube.com/gosphero

Fixed:
• Handling and Acceleration. You can adjust your handling and acceleration settings again. Sorry about that.
• Firmware updates and connections should be even more reliable.
• Adjusted the joystick sensitivity to provide more control at lower speeds.
• Lots of other bugs squashed as well.
