Drive anywhere with RVR™

You demanded for an infinitely programmable, all-terrain, highly expandable robot- well, here it is. Meet RVR, the robot inspired by hackers, learners, teachers and makers like you; but built by us.

Sphero’s RVR is a unique programmable robot- immediately drivable, includes a variety of sensors, and completely customizable. By connecting third-party hardware like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BBC micro:bit, Raspberry Pi, or Sphero’s own littleBits, you can grow RVR’s potential even further. RVR is your blank slate on the go. Grow it, programme and hack the robot of your dreams- then take it anywhere.

Key features

Great for Learners

RVR is great to drive and simple to code. Open the Sphero Edu App to to drive RVR around and once you’re ready to start coding, the Sphero Edu App makes it easy and new: start out with Draw & Drive then try out Scratch Blocks.

A Mode for Makers

Want more? Sync RVR’s strong integrated sensors into your programming activities and coding schemes, then show them off to the world!

Highly Hackable

Using JavaScript, grow with the 3rd party hardware or expand further with our public SDK library. RVR is the on the go platform that can match the pace of the most skilled programmers and learners.

Driven and Dependable

An intense motor, all-terrain treads, and lots of torque gives you the option to drive RVR just about anywhere. RVR also includes a honed, expert-level control system that won’t be discouraged by blocks or bumpy surfaces. 

Super Programmable

Create the robot of your dreams and then program it with the Sphero Edu App such as Draw & Drive, Scratch Blocks and JavaScript.

Stuffed with Sensors

RVR’s integrated sensors include a colour sensor, light sensor, IR magnetometer, accelerometer, and gyroscope. Direct RVR through a colour maze or tape into IR to experience bot-to-bot dialogue.

3rd Party Hardware

With RVR’s 4-pin UART expansion port and integrated power, you can install and play 3rd party hardware like a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, micro:bit and Sphero’s littleBits, as well. Want RVR to become your home security guard, an independent metal detector or an geographical sensor you can control over the internet? If you can programme it, RVR can do it.
