Description

From a galaxy far, far away, we introduce to you BB-8™, the app-enabled Droid™ whose advanced intelligence offers robotic movement, interaction and personality as never experienced before.

Coming directly from Star Wars™: The Force Awakens into your very own home, BB-8 can be controlled using your smartphone or tablet but also recognises and reacts to your voice commands with a range of advanced expressions and behaviour. Designed with in-built holographic communication capacities, the Sphero BB-8 allows you to record and view virtual holographic videos. Yet be warned: BB-8 also has a mind of its own and is able to function autonomously, exploring the galaxy around it to develop its intelligence and personality.

BB-8 is not a toy, but rather a companion, whose unique attitude, behaviour and actions evolve as you interact with your personal Droid. It offers you an engaging personality, legendary loyalty and an extremely agile Droid for hours of fun at home or outdoors. 


Now with Brand New Features: A brand new software update from Sphero transforms your BB-8 into the ultimate Star Wars: The Force Awakens viewing companion. This cool new feature sees BB-8 demonstrate a full range of reactions when he sits down beside you to watch the latest release from the Star Wars canon.

When BB-8 sees a familiar friendly face in the film, such as his own or Han Solo's, he will whir with excitement, but when he hears the voice of Kylo Ren he will shy away in fear. BB-8's reactions to the film are sure to bring the film to life at home, and make him an invaluable viewing buddy for enjoying the film at home.

Sphero have also indicated they are working on similar software updates, meaning you can rest assured your BB-8 will continue to amaze and entertain long into the future.

Great product, great fun. Packaging is amazing - really sets the scene for a great present. Ordering was simple - last minute birthday present & paid for super-duper next day delivery - which obviously was scheduled to be delivered to my home when no one would be in (sods law) - had the delivery re-routed to Halfords to collect from there - but was disappointed to find that it then wasn't available to collect until after mid-day the next day - and then the queue in Halfords was ridiculous. But well worth all the effort - have now also purchased a force wrist band & am currently a jedi in training!

I bought this for the Star Wars fan in my house, my 51 year young husband, for his birthday. He was delighted with it and even pushed aside his Lego Star Wars set to set it up instantly and play, making him late for a conference call! It's easy to set up, the app was easy to install and it's great fun to use and quite robust. The packaging is excellent and it came well within the time allowed. The offer was brilliant too, best gift I've bought in a while

Bought this for my husbands 40th Birthday. He is very pleased with it, as is my 5yr old son! He is very cute but I was surprised that he was SO small!

Bought this for the man who has everything and he loved it. He's difficult to buy for but I know he loves tech and Star Wars so I had a good idea he would like it. Easy to set up and had some power even before the initial charge, this is good because sometimes you're too excited to wait. He tested it on the laminate floor in the lounge and both cats left the room soon after. It makes cute noises as it explores the room. It's in no way a useful thing to have but then thats not why I bought it. The app to control it is easy to use and I'm sure it'll entertain him for a few years before it becomes an ornament.

Brilliant and great price - when I finally got it working! Couldn't get it to link through Bluetooth. Thought I had a problem with my new phone at first, so spent a happy afternoon in the mobile phone shop. No joy. Then I searched the web - lots of people having a problem, so felt a bit better but hadn't solved anything. Then had a light-bulb moment in the middle of the night. Check the app download? I had downloaded the WRONG app!!! Beware - this is called the Sphero BB8. So I downloaded the Sphero app. IDIOT!!! It should have been the Sphero BB8 app. With the correct app in place, I was off and (literally) running in seconds! I wonder how many of the other people having a problem did the same thing?

I cannot recommend the sphero's bb8 droid enough. From the moment I opened the box I couldn't charge it fast enough, it is very well packaged and presented and plays great. If you looking for a gift for someone or for yourself, this is the droid your looking for!

Great product, and I'm hopeful of new features with future updates. But for now I love it and my dogs are getting less wary of the little guy Got it in a flash sale and the IWOOT service and dispatch times were excellent. No complaints.

Great product and lots of fun. Initially a little tricky to navigate but once you get the hang of it....space is your only limitation. When on patrol BB-8 can get confused by uneven floors and pets. As long as you can keep the pets from jumping on or trying to eat BB-8, there is entertainment for the entire household.

Such a great product, shame I had issues with IWOOT. Problems taking payment, issues on their side. Took about a week to solve the problem as its difficult contacting them

Every year, my now 24 year old son asks for "surprise" presents- he mistakenly thinks I have the energy to care. Thank Goodness for IWOOT. I saw the wee droid on the website and bought it for his birthday and then held my breath. I knew I'd got it right when he asked to Skype and showed me the BB8 in action using his iphone. He absolutely loves it. Very cute, noisy, recklessly colliding with furniture, and just a joy. It made us laugh and laugh especially at full speed. He is looking forward to taking him into work and showing him off. Every home should have one. Clever, cute and joyful!

Fantastic piece of engineering science - Bit disappointed with size but, that's the storey of my life - However quality makes up for that - Bit concerned that I am talking to it like a human as it has definitely got a character of it's own - Picks up dust very easily, guess that's caused by static, just give it a clean prior recharging - I'm not letting a child near this, IT'S MINE !!! PS - Age groups below need revising (I'm 70) as over 55 seems a bit vague

Really fun, a little smaller than I expected, would be handy if you could voice control from any menu, but I'm told more firmware updates (passed to the device from your app) are coming.
