Come September the BB8 Sphero is back and better than ever. Showcased in its prototype form at CES in Vegas earlier this year, the droid has been a major hit with Star Wars lovers all over the globe.

This year the droid will be controlled via hand gestures thanks to a wearable remote attached to your wrist in the form of a bracelet. The tool that looks like a fitness tracker measures hand orientation in order to control BB8 in its flight across the room.

The droid will also include a Watch With Me Feature where BB8 tunes in to any Star Wars film and immediately recognises where you are up to and issues reactions.
