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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Good but needs some extras

Wag wag woo

I love the Ollie and how you can do tricks and race with other Ollie's! but you need to add more because with the sphero you can do so much what can you do with just a Ollie? So I have 2 ideas first you should add ramps so people can buy them at the market. also you should add a timer so we can see how much time it takes us to finish a lap, the next idea is if you could add daily or hourly challenges like do 5 wildcat rodeo or do 3 sick spins and if you finish these challenges you get coins and you can use them to change your color. If you add these updates the game will be so much better! Thank you

Exceeded expectations

All nicknames taken42103

I was expecting a simple driving app, but with idle animations, a trick board, portrait mode, customizable settings for speed, drift, and acceleration, AND EVEN MORE, I was simply blown away. The only improvement I can think of making is different ways to control Ollie besides a joystick, but overall, this app makes Ollie so fun to drive and makes you seem skilled when people watch you drive!

Ollie is amazing! But the app needs work


Ollie is possibly the best app driven robot I’ve ever come across, but the app needs work. It seems like the firmware has a charging bug in which the main lights flash when the Ollie charges, and Ollie starts turning it’s wheels very fast. Firmware force won’t fix it.
