Sphero BB-8 Will Watch The Force Awakens with You

by Shane McGlaun

I already thought that Sphero BB-8 toy was pretty awesome. I even had a hex put on our fearless leader when he refused to rig the drawing so I could win the toy a few months back. I’m having that hex renewed as we speak because that Sphero BB-8 toy just got an awesome update.

If you apply the latest update to the controller app for the toy, BB-8 will “watch” The Force Awakens with you. BB-8 gets all happy when Han and Chewie are on screen. He gets scared when Kylo Ren is on screen. He also toots his own horn when he sees himself on screen.

This is a very cool way to keep people interested in a toy a few months after they got one at Christmas. By “they” got one at Christmas I don’t mean me, apparently 40 something is too old to get a toy robot from your parents for Christmas. They should remember who gets to pick the nursing home.
