RVR™

The Go-Anywhere, Do-Anything Programmable Robot

$249.99

RVR is Sphero’s revolutionary take on the programmable robot -- drivable right out of the box, packed with a diverse suite of sensors, and built for customization. Expand RVR's capabilities even further by connecting third-party hardware like a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, BBC micro:bit, or Sphero’s own littleBits. RVR is your mobile blank canvas. Code with it, build on it, and hack the robot of your dreams — then take it anywhere.

Meet RVR


You asked for an all-terrain, highly programmable, infinitely-expandable robot — well, here it is. Meet RVR, the robot built by us but inspired by educators, students, hackers, and makers like you.

Level Up with RVR

The robot that grows with you.

Good for Beginners


RVR is fun to drive and easy to code. Open up the Sphero Edu app to drive RVR all over and when you’re ready to start coding, the Sphero Edu app makes it simple and intuitive: start out with Draw & Drive then dive into Scratch Blocks.

A Medium for Makers


Ready for more? Integrate RVR's powerful on-board sensors into your programming projects and coding creations, then share them with the world.

Highly Expandable for Hackers


Code with JavaScript, expand with 3rd party hardware, or go even further with our public SDK library. RVR is the mobile platform that can keep up with the most skilled hackers and hobbyists.

What will you build?

A platform for creativity.

Tough and Tenacious


A powerful motor, all-terrain treads, and plenty of torque give you the freedom to drive RVR just about anywhere. RVR also features a precise, professional-level control system that won’t be deterred by obstacles or uneven surfaces.

Highly Programmable


Build the robot of your dreams and then program it three ways with the Sphero Edu app — Draw & Drive, Scratch Blocks and JavaScript.

Packed with Sensors


RVR's on-board sensors include a color sensor, light sensor, IR, magnetometer, accelerometer, and gyroscope. Navigate RVR through a color maze or tap into IR to play with bot-to-bot communication.

3rd Party Time


With RVR’s 4-pin UART expansion port and on-board power, you can attach and run 3rd party hardware like a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, micro:bit, and Sphero's littleBits, as well. Want RVR to be your home security sentry, an autonomous metal detector or an environmental sensor you can control over the internet? Chances are, if you can hack it, RVR can do it.

Sphero SDK


We've opened up our SDK library so you can unlock the full potential of your RVR. Want to be the first to know about SDK updates? Sign up for our SDK newsletter.
