Orbotix, the company that makes the Sphero and Ollie robotic toys, has raised a new $US15.5 million round, the company tells Business Insider.
Jim Booth, COO of Orbotix, tells us that this brings the company’s total funding to $US32.6 million.
This round includes money from Grishin Robotics, which invests specifically in consumer robotics companies.
Booth tells us that the new funds will “be used to expand. We’ve had a tremendous amount of success and we’re just going to pour gasoline on the fire.”
Earlier today, TechCrunch reported that Orbotix raised $US20 million, but that figure is incorrect.
