This is the droid you’re looking for. For nearly forty years, R2-D2 has captivated the affections of children and adults alike as the most charming droid in the galaxy. That is, until the spherical droid BB-8 rolled onto the scene. Now BB-8, the astromech droid featured in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, can belong to you.
Just like in the movie, he’s not CGI. This adorable android is a technological powerhouse made possible only by pushing the engineering envelope. He rolls on his spherical body, while his head remains fixed on top. Painstaking detail has been taken to ensure your officially-licensed BB-8 looks and functions similarly to his silver-screen counterpart.
When you control him via your phone or tablet, he nimbly moves along flat surfaces and around objects. In addition to controlled guidance, BB-8 can recognize and react to your voice, just like the droid from Star Wars. And through the magic of augmented reality, you can even send holographic messages.
Of course, BB-8 wouldn’t be a true droid if he didn’t have a mind of his own. BB-8 is programmed with autonomous behavior, making him more than just a remote controlled toy. Like a real astromech droid, he’s a companion. And his adaptive personality programming will enable his actions and attitude to evolve as you interact with him.
