The new version on the Sphero robotic ball is definitely a serious improvement with over twice the speed of the original, 3 times brighter, totally waterproof and with a bluetooth range of 30m. Sphero 2.0 manages 1 hour of continuous play time for a 3 hour recharge, which is achieved by simply placing the ball in the included charging tray.
