Review: Darkside Ollie by Sphero

Fresh from a super cool collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm for the new Star Wars movie (yep, BB-8 is their work), Sphero this week unveiled its newest app controlled droid: Darkside. An update to last year’s Ollie, Darkside is a blacked-out version that channels its inner Sith powers and is much less subservient than its blue and white…
