This is the Droid you’re looking for. Meet BB-8 the app-enabled Droid that’s as authentic as it is advanced. BB-8 has something unlike any other robot – an adaptive personality that changes as you play. Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and even perk up when you give voice commands. Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously, make up your own adventure and guide BB-8 yourself, or create and view holographic recordings.

Sphero’s BB-8 is controllable with a Star Wars-themed smartphone app and the help of a Wi-Fi signal. It responds to simple directional inputs as well as pre-set commands. The company took care to breathe life into the toy, having it emit the chirps and squeaks that make Star Wars‘ droids feel somehow alive. It comes with a recharging dock and gets about an hour of play time on a three hour charge. BB-8’s software is updatable via the app, meaning the company can add new features over time.
