Sphero Mini Soccer on soccer field.
Sphero releases Mini Soccer – a sporty take on the popular Sphero Mini – a robotic ball and accessories that kick fun and learning into high gear.

Mini Soccer has everything you need to get the ball rolling. Included is a Sphero Mini app-enabled robotic ball – complete with a custom black and white shell resembling an actual soccer ball, plus eight cones to inspire creative challenges. Kick off the fun by syncing up your Mini Soccer with the Sphero Play app to activate a scrimmage with Kick Drive, program your robot with precision around the cones using the new Block Drive horizontal coding feature, or make the transition to learn more challenging functions through block-based programming in the Sphero Edu app. With hundreds of free STEM-based activities, the Sphero Edu app takes fun into overtime.

Mini Soccer is packed with powerful tech so you can make the big plays. It comes equipped with color-changing LEDs, accelerometer, gyroscope, a 10m range Bluetooth connection, and a rechargeable battery with 45 minutes of playtime.

Also on September 16, Sphero will introduce Block Drive into their Sphero Play app – a friendly introduction to basic robot coding, perfect for beginners. Movement Blocks tell your robot which direction to roll, while Light Blocks add playful, colorful LED effects.
