News:: Sphero's latest app-controlled toy is a 'Cars 3' tie-in

Sphero's made a name for itself with connected, rolling toys like the Ollie, SPRK and, perhaps most famously, the Star Wars-inspired BB-8. Of course, the company couldn't have brought its replica of the Force Awakens character to market without Disney's approval, and the two seem to be keen on working together. Today, Sphero introduced its first app-controlled car, based on the "Ultimate Lighting McQueen" personality from Pixar's Cars franchise. Sphero says the new toy is its most animatronic device yet, featuring five motors for steering, drifting, lifting and moving up and down, as well as animated eyes and a mouth that make it feel more realistic.
