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.
The BB-8 is an app-controlled robot that includes feature such as:
- Authentic Movement // Guide your BB-8 with a smartphone or tablet
- Listens & Responds // BB-8 recognizes and reacts to your voice
- Holographic Communication // Record and view virtual holographic videos with BB-8
- Autonomous Behavior // BB-8 has a mind of its own – explore the Star Wars™ galaxy together
- Adaptive Personality // Your BB-8’s unique attitude and actions evolve as you interact
