The tiny droid gets smarter.
To coincide with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Blu-ray, Sphero has updated its BB-8 app to let its BB-8 droid react while you’re watching the movie.
This should go well when you decide that your 10th viewing of Star Wars isn’t enough and no one would be willing to go with you, at least BB-8 will be there to cry with you when Han Solo dies (spoiler alert).
The Sphero app should be running while the movie is playing, and you should grand access to the microphone since it’s the app that would be listening to the movie so therefore would send BB-8 the appropriate commands on how to act.
In addition, the app can also act as a second screen function that can deliver facts and factoids that pop up as you watch the movie.
The new features come with the new update of the BB-8 by Sphero app available on iOS and Android.
