    Meet Darkside - Devious. Defiant. Diabolical. Dangerous. Few have the strength to command the dark powers bound within this robot. This is Darkside – an electrical beast that draws its energy from unrestrained competition and reckless abandonment. Command this app-enabled robot with these forces to unleash its unrivaled power. But take heed – the Darkside will overpower anything standing in the way of victory – including its master. You have been warned.

    Darkside rolls at speeds of up to 22kph and connects instantly to your device via Bluetooth SMART with a range of up to 100 feet. Turn on the spot with Nubby Tyres or take them off to drift like a street racer. Darkside also comes with a bonus set of Turbo Tyres and Flux Hubs so you can customise performance. Powered by USB charging, Darkside’s LED’s glow in customisable colours as it spins, drifts and flips with app-powered tricks.

    Key Features
    Wicked Fast Racing
    Command Darkside from your smartphone or tablet at speeds of up to 22kph. Darkside’s durable shell means you don’t have to worry about crashing and built-‐‐in LED’s with customisable settings let you drive at night.
    Diabolical Tricks
    The Darkside app is built to let you pull off amazing tricks. Command Darkside with the joystick while you use the trick pad to spin, flip and discover hundreds of combinations.

    Custom Tyres and Hubs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BUY The sphero ollie dark side is great for any one whether there a child or simply an adult just wanting to have a heap of fun. The ollie dark side just requires a phone to start you off and then you won't be able to stop this fun magnet from making you spend all your spare time using it. I have had the olive darkside for nearly a year now and I can not stop playing it and find it a great "toy" for anyone as it offers a wide range of led colours to suit your style. I guess what I'm trying to say Is this product is a definite buy and would make a great gift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fun I purchased this product about a month ago I was so looking forward to receive this product to test it out as I had heard so much about it, it lived up to all expectations. This product is easy to use, just charge it it up down load the app and off you go, it is so easy to use that it let my two children drive it and we all have a great time with it highly recommend to any one that is looking at this.
