      Top features: 

      - Your very own droid to control 

      - Authentic personality that develops through autonomous exploration 

      - Holographic messaging using your smartphone or tablet 

      - Force Band keeps you in control with a wave of your hand 

      Your very own droid

      The Sphero BB-8 is your personal robot companion that moves just like the lovable droid first seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 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.

      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.

      Reflecting the wear and tear of trekking across the galaxy on Resistance missions with a battleworn design, 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.

      Force Band keeps you in control

      Like a Jedi Knight, you can control your BB-8 with just a wave of your hand. Learn to control your Droid by mastering moves like Force push and pull. After you've advanced beyond Droid Control, expand your abilities as BB-8 guides you through Force Training. Use the band by itself to complete Combat Training for Blasters, Lightsabers, and the Force itself, or uncover and collect digital holocrons in your environment with Force Awareness.

      The Force Band is also compatible with the original BB-8 App-Enabled Droid by Sphero and other Sphero robots powered by Bluetooth SMART.

      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.
