Can you program this droid to navigate around your house? I see there is an app that you use with it but do you always have to control Artoo this way?

    You can only program R2 via Swift Playgrounds, which is a story based method of teaching programming. Because it’s story based you can’t really program him to walk a particular path. But there is a patrol mode in the sphero made app which will cause R2 to be self guided in his exploration of his environment. Does that answer your question?

  • I believe if you download the Swift or Swift Playground coding apps you should be able to program his movements

  • All actions are fully programable through JavaScript and Swift. There is a simpler block programming language that controls the Sphero robots
