If you were at the MOREnet Annual Conference you probably saw Sphero’s newest robot, the RVR. It is an easy to use robot, but more importantly to has a 4-pin UART expansion port is designed to work with most third-party hardware, such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, micro:bit and littleBits. The RVR can be used with the Sphero Edu app and their soon to be release RVR specific app. The RVR has a color sensor, a light sensor, IR, a magnetometer, an accelerometer and a gyroscope.
Thanks to MOREnet’s partnership with Sphero you are able to pre-order the RVR at a discount for a limited time. Sphero is also offering a significant discount on their Fundamentals Self-Guided professional learning course. See MyMOREnet for pricing and ordering details.
