If you're bored at home right now, Sphero may just have the answer. The robotics company is responsible for all sorts of fun distractions; from R2-D2 to Lightning McQueen, there's a robo toy for folks of all persuasions. And right now, its all-terrain tank robot vehicle, the Sphero RVR, is on sale at Amazon.
This robot may be diminutive in size, but it's still an all-terrain programmable tank-style vehicle that comes complete with color sensor, light sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope. A powerful motor, all-terrain treads and high torque make it perfect for exploring the backyard, and there's a protective roll cage for when your offroading gets extra offroad. The removable and rechargeable battery delivers plenty of juice to power RVR and any projects added to it.
