A long time ago… in a galaxy not so far away… mankind dreamt of a future where robots like BB-8™ would exist. This revolutionary Droid™ can be controlled with your iOS or Android smartphone, with the app available to download from the Apple and Play stores. The robot is designed with cutting-edge technology, enabling it to immediately begin learning its surroundings and develop a unique relationship with you, its owner.
The BB-8 comes from the creators of Sphero, and is modelled on the full-size version, which features in Star Wars™: The Force Awakens, allowing you to get an early experience with the upcoming film. Set the BB-8 to ‘Patrol’ mode and watch it use the force by independently moving around your home or garden. You can also talk to your robotic companion as the Droid™ recognises your voice and reacts accordingly with different behaviours.
Augmented reality transcends fiction and enters your room via the Sphero BB-8, which can combine with your smartphone to produce Star Wars™ holograms. You can view all data and statistics about your robot’s most recent travels whilst your companion autonomously explores the galaxy.
The force is certainly strong with this one as the BB-8 goes beyond the realm of toys and exists as the most accurate emulation of a Droid™ ever. Its autonomous intuition and innovative construction will keep you entertained for hours; the BB-8 is a must-have for Star Wars™ fans. –M.R
Now with Brand New Features: A brand new software update from Sphero transforms your BB-8 into the ultimate Star Wars: The Force Awakens viewing companion. This cool new feature sees BB-8 demonstrate a full range of reactions when he sits down beside you to watch the latest release from the Star Wars canon.
When BB-8 sees a familiar friendly face in the film, such as his own or Han Solo's, he will whir with excitement, but when he hears the voice of Kylo Ren he will shy away in fear. BB-8's reactions to the film are sure to bring the film to life at home, and make him an invaluable viewing buddy for enjoying the film at home.
Sphero have also indicated they are working on similar software updates, meaning you can rest assured your BB-8 will continue to amaze and entertain long into the future.
