Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Super Cute Droid Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2015-12-11

BB-8 is a droid which appears in the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie and thanks to Sphero and their cooperation with Lucasfilm and Disney Consumer products, we are able to have a smaller version of it in our homes, which sports some of the features which we have seen in the trailers of the well-known episode of the series. Sphero has built BB-8 on the proven platform of their other droids so the final result is a fully-fledged app-controlled robot which can be driven in a manual mode, comes with a “Patrol” automatic mode and can also display holographic clips (up to 12 seconds long) via the augmented reality feature of the application. Sphero has also mentioned that they will continue to update the robot and add more interesting features to it, near the date The Force Awakens will be released and also afterwards.
