Say hello to BB-8!
The world may have had its eyes on IFA, but Star Wars’ Force Friday saw the release of a plethora of collectible toys and gadgets that fans of the saga will love. One of these gadgets is BB-8, and is sure to make fans and even tech geeks smile with joy when they receive one.
BB-8 is the new droid to be featured on the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. It is basically a spherical ball with an attached head. Many figured that the new droid will be made from CGI, but turns out that the filmmakers really built a robot.
Now everyone will get the chance to get their own BB-8 thanks to Sphero, who made an awesome miniature replica of the droid. BB-8 will be app connected, and you need either an iOS or Android smartphone to operate it. It even includes a docking station where it can charge.
BB-8 will sell for $150 – but better buy now before it becomes sold out.
I think this is the droid you were looking for.
