Reading Time: 1 minute


When Disney released the first trailers of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the two biggest conversation topics were the hilted light saber and BB-8, the cutest robot to come along since R2-D2 first beeped and chirped onto the scene in 1977. Now, thanks to the folks behind the Sphero, you can own your own little rolling Droid.
