Star Wars Droid BB-8 by Sphero just Arrived

Sphero took the wraps off its toy version of the biggest new star in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. The BB-8 droid has captured the hearts of fans around the world. Watch the cool promo video below.

The Sphero BB-8 Droid has made an appearance on Good Morning America this morning. Now the company has released all the details about the hottest Star Wars: The Force Awakens toy.

The app controlled BB-8 has his own evolving personality. The little droid zips around in the same fashion like in the movie. His head floats on the spinning larger sphere. Features of the little high-tech toy include Bluetooth with 30m range, gyroscopic propulsion, 60min. battery life and inductive charging.

The Sphero BB-8 comes with a charging stand.

Sphero mixed a bit of Furby into the BB-8. The droid develops over time a unique attitude. It reacts to the owner's voice and even perks when addressed.

The BB-8 can also record, send and view holographic messages.

BB-8's pricing is not official yet. A $149 price tag was spotted on boxes earlier this summer though. It is not confirmed, but the BB-8 toy should go on sale at midnight along with all other Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys.
