Product information
Get your very own droid companion with the authentic Sphero BB-8 Droid.

This is the Droid™ you're looking for


The Sphero BB8 is your personal robot companion that moves just like the lovable droid first seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. BB-8 can explore your home autonomously, or you can take the lead and control him from your smartphone or tablet.

Simply download the app to an Android or iOS mobile device to get started. The app includes a quick guide to get you up and rolling in seconds, so don't worry if BB-8 is the first droid you've owned.

The app gives you plenty of options to keep your new companion occupied: you can guide BB-8 around your home, send it out on patrol and ask it to hide in case of danger.

Authentic personality


BB-8's personality and actions evolve as it spends more time with you. As BB-8 patrols your home it makes a map of its route, noting dangers it comes across (a chair leg, the cat's bed, storm troopers etc) and avoids them in the future.

BB-8 perks up and shows a range of emotions and expressions when you give voice commands - it gets scared when you ask it to hide and shows excitement when you wake it up from charge.

Holographic messaging


What's a droid without a holoprojector? BB-8 can play holographic messages recorded using the front-facing camera on your smartphone or tablet. When you press play, just point the camera at BB-8 to see your message as a hologram on your device's screen.

Control your very own Droid with Star Wars Sphero BB-8.

The design on the BB-8 is very good.
I think for the price you pay it's ridiculous, it's been used about twice since Christmas, would never buy this product again.

I love how I can use my phone or force band. I love it when it goes on patrol. It gets excited when the movie is playing too.
It was hard to get up and running. This is not the bb8 fault or products though. It was the Bluetooth on my phone that I had to upgrade. This was simple to do when I figured out how to.

If you have problems (phone doesn't work with bb8) then try to upgrade your phones Bluetooth first.
