Move over R2-D2 and C3-PO, there’s a new droid in town and it goes by the name of BB-8! This adorably cute astromech droid is set to star in the new Star Wars movie ‘The Force Awakens’ and it’s got everyone at RED5 well and truly hy-spherical with excitement!
This rolling ball of personality is the latest creation from Sphero, and just like the V2 and the Ollie, it’s completely controllable from a smartphone or tablet. Not only that but you can also control BB-8 with various voice commands or it can roam autonomously exploring its environment, hopefully avoiding Kylo Ren and the First Order in the process.
No astromech droid is complete without the ability to create and view holographic recordings (help me Obi Wan you’re my only hope) and you’ll be pleased to know the BB-8 also has this ability programmed into its circuitry (with the help of the clever app).
We can’t emphasize enough just how cool this little droid is and we’re sure you’ll love getting to know your new companion and its range of expressions.
Update! The coolest toy in the galaxy just got cooler! Control your BB8 droid with a flick of your hand with the new Force Band or check out the special edition Battleworn BB8.
