Sphero makes undeniably-cool, programmable robots and STEAM-based educational tools that transform the way kids learn, create, and invent through coding, science, music, and the arts. The Sphero ecosystem of tools and content, which includes littleBits, gives kids, teachers, and parents of all learning and coding abilities a blank canvas to solve challenges at home, in school, and beyond.

Kids don’t just want to code, they want to use their imagination to create epic experiences. Sphero goes #BeyondCode and inspires kids to learn, build, create, and turn their imagination into a reality.  Most importantly, Sphero makes it fun.

The skills students unlock through coding prepare them to thrive, no matter what subject or career they pursue. Sphero tools help bring math, science, music, and art lessons off the pages of a textbook and into real-world applications.

While coding and 21st century skills are necessary, our program also goes beyond code by incorporating robotics and technology with collaborative STEAM activities, nurturing students’ imaginations in ways no other education program can. 

Our cross-platform apps are approachable for all skill levels and allow users to progress with ease, enabling us to reach as many minds as possible and provide ongoing challenges. Think outside the bot and inspire your future. This is Sphero Edu.

RVR

RVR is Sphero’s revolutionary take on the programmable robot. It’s drivable right out of the box, packed with a diverse suite of sensors, and built for customization. This tank-style robot is a hackable mobile platform for beginners, educators, students, and tech hobbyists.

Download the Sphero Edu app to drive or program RVR all over. Literally. RVR is equipped with all-terrain treads, a powerful motor, and plenty of torque so you can go faster and farther. Obstacles or uneven surfaces won't affect RVR's ability to drive straight, thanks to a sophisticated, vector-based control system. RVR goes where you want it to go.

Driving RVR is just the beginning. RVR’s extremely hackable platform, featuring a 4-pin UART and an onboard power source, allows you to connect and run third-party hardware like littleBits, Arduino, a Raspberry Pi, or BBC micro:bit. Build the robot of your dreams and then program it with the Sphero Edu app.
