Make Your Own Mini Star Wars BB-8 Droid

Christian Poulsen liked the BB-8 droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens so much that he decided to make his own. He actually made the droid you see here in less than a day, which is why the surfacing and paint is not perfect. Hey, it just looks “weathered”. I think he did an awesome job.

He used a Sphero 1.0 robot for the body, polyurethane foam surfaced with spackle for the head, and neodymium magnets to connect the body to the head. This is a fun project that Star Wars fans are going to love. You can see it come together step by step here.
