Misty II is for the Classroom
Are your kids tired of putting together the same robots over and over?
Are they doing FIRST robotics clubs, but frustrated because they don’t have a chance to explore the coding side of robots more deeply?
They’ve done about all they can do with LEGO® MINDSTORMS®?
Are they ready to move on to programming a pre-built robot with advanced abilities?
We’ve been using other robots in our freshman course for a few years and very excited to include Misty who is a more capable, more programmable robot, for the bachelor of innovation students across 20 different fields. And with the Arduino backpack, students from the engineering college can also add a wide range of sensing and controllable items.”—Terry Boult, Professor at CU Colorado Springs
With Misty II, students can explore:
- face/object detection and recognition (for a few students or a whole class)
- computer mapping and navigation
- human-computer interaction (How can you make Misty express joy or curiosity?)
- remote viewing and communication
- Arduino accessories
- and more…

Misty Robotics was spun off of Sphero in 2017 to focus on making great personal robots, but we’ve not forgotten our educational past. Misty II and Sphero SPRK+ work great together, and we’ve got special pricing on packages that include both.
We’ve got teens attending our robothons and actively taking part in our developer community. Your students are welcome, too.
It’s about time a company made an educational robot that did more than the basics. Teachers want platforms that engage, where imaginations can run wild. Sensors are cheap these days, so a lot of educational robots are getting cameras and more. But doing anything interesting with them out of the box? No way.”
—Tim Enwall, Misty Robotics CEO
