Star Wars

Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droid

30th October 2015

I purchased the Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droid on Star Wars Force Friday and was lucky to get one shipped immediately. As soon as I saw the demo of the product, I knew I had to have one!

The Sphero BB-8 is a remote controlled toy that moves in a way that you couldn’t have imagined only a few years ago. It is a ball with an “R2D2” like dome on top that stays on while the ball spins. The dome does stay on pretty well, though I did remove it for a while because my 9 month old kept grabbing the head and pulling it off. The BB-8 doesn’t need the head to move- it’s just for decoration.

If you have kids or pets, you’ll find the BB-8 a blast. It’s easy to make the droid have life-like movements. So much so, that I think my 9 month old thinks the BB-8 is part of the family.

Here’s the video demonstration of the BB-8.
