We’ve seen how you can make a robot replica and a 3D printed figure of Star Wars‘ new droid BB-8. Here’s Caleb Kraft’s low budget version: a BB-8 hand puppet.

Caleb made the puppet using a 12″ globe, a 6″ styrofoam sphere, four neodymium magnets and some spray paint. Caleb also used an old camera lens as BB-8’s eye, but that’s completely optional. Put simply, Caleb attached a pair of magnets on the puppet’s styrofoam head, then another pair on a wooden handle. He then moves the handle inside the globe to make head move.
