The Sphero RVR is only ~$172 right now on Amazon. It's a 2 hour battery life programmable car that you can stack other components onto, like a Raspberry Pi or Sphero accessories. It has an SDK and can be coded with Javascript among other simpler interfaces, including an app on basically every platform.

I'm not gonna flag it as spam, but it looks a bit like self promotion.

It also seems pretty overpriced, grossly so for makers. It's the same price as a drone with many features, but it can't fly.

I wouldn't spend that kind of money on a company that "improves" items by taking away apps for older items so they don't work anymore and are proud to respond that way on the app store. You are now forced to sideload older apps from sketchy sites if you still want to play with these older items. STAY AWAY FROM SPHERO! You've been warned.

Thank you for your post. Last night, or rather early this AM, I was about to place an order. But then I thought I'd wait a while before making a decision. I'm glad I did. (BTW, I'm simply fascinated by your avatar. It seems vaguely families, but I can't quite put my finger on it right now.)

Didn't realize it had been lower. I'm not associated with Sphero at all (would be a pretty long con to have this account for this lol). Just had it in an Amazon wishlist for a short while and saw it drop suddenly.

Just shred your money. I'll be more enjoyable than giving this POS company any money.
