Sphero Star Wars BB-8 App Controlled Robot with Star Wars Force Band
Star Wars fans can rejoice, as they’ve now got the ability to use the Force and play with a friendly droid companion all in one. The Star Wars BB-8 App Controlled Robot with Star Wars Force Band is a great new toy developed by Sphero based on the newest movie in the franchise, The Force Awakens. With this, you can make believe you’re a Jedi Knight while playing with the lovable BB-8 with ease.
BB-8 is a sophisticated drone that responds to how you treat it. Responding to both voice commands and hand gestures, you can interact with BB-8 from up to 30 meters away. A 60 minute battery life means there’s no end to the fun you can have.
The Force Band accessory straps onto the user’s wrist, allowing you to command BB-8 as if by using the Force. Simple commands like moving forward, back, or side to side can be done without the need of voice commands. Additionally, the BB-8 drone is equipped with app connectivity, allowing you to use additional features like an adaptive personality, The Force Training, or viewing “holographic recordings”.
