Star Wars BB-8 App-Enabled Droid by Sphero

The Star Wars Force Friday unveiled a ton of exciting toys inspired by the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. Perhaps the most exciting one is the BB-8 App-Enabled Droid by Sphero.

BB-8 was introduced during the first Star Wars:The Force Awakens teaser trailer. During The Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, we saw a real working BB-8 on stage. There were also rumours that Sphero was working on a BB-8 toy.
And here it is.

The BB-8 is very much like the Sphero 2.0 but with a droid head. You can control the BB-8 with your smartphone via an app that is available for both iOS and Android. You can even make BB-8 convey certain emotions like nodding the head, shaking the head, joy or even panic.
It also has a patrol mode that makes BB-8 roam around the room on its own. And since there’s no sensor or camera, it will bump into walls.

Like the Sphero, the BB-8 is pretty durable.
