We surely have reviewed and recommended a lot of fun Tech Toys on our partner sites. BUT: Sphero BB8 Robot – this Cool piece of Tech beats them all.
Over the years, the magic of Star Wars has always lived on screen and in our imaginations. Thanks to new, advancements in technology, you now can bring a new part of Star Wars home: Let The Force Awaken and be With You!
BB-8 – the app-enabled Droid looks very authentic. BB-8 has something unlike any other robot. “…an adaptive personality that changes as you play” was said by its creators. We were skeptical, but after 3 days of playing we had to admit. This little “toy” and it often seems to be so much more than just that became a part of our team. A real Fun-Part!
Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and even perk up when you give voice commands. You can command it to patrol. So if you do not want to control it all the time, just sit back and watch your Droid explore autonomously. Or guide BB-8 yourself, or create and view holographic recordings.
