For a Christmas gift that really gets kids excited, there’s just nothing better than a remote-controlled device. Last year, the Sphero took the holidays by storm with its innovative app-controlled design that let users control the toy’s movements with their smartphone. This year Orbotix, the company that created the Sphero, is at it again with the brand new Ollie app-controlled robot!
This toy is the newest innovation in app-controlled devices. Ollie is essentially designed in the same manner as a remote control car, but with a minimalist, futuristic design. The toy is controlled using an iOS or Android app via Bluetooth and has a range of up to thirty metres. That means my boys could send Ollie all over the house with ease!
