For a while now, there has been one Star Wars 7 toy that has been on the wish list of many fans of the franchise, and even a few less-fanatic toy buyers that cannot help be won over by the design and potential. The Sphero BB-8 App Enabled Droid has been capturing the imaginations of countless fans of Star Wars and robots in general because it appears to be so intelligent and interesting. Having a model of a droid is one thing but one that actually patrols a room with “authentic movement” and an apparent mind of its own is something else.

The BB-8 is obviously related to the new Episode 7 film being released at the end of the year – The Force Awakens – and while it will be unclear to many looking at the model precisely who this is and what his purpose is, there is instant familiarly in the design and shape that makes the droid attractive, engaging and, arguably, cute. This little buddy is for the big kid Star Wars fans, who can control its movements via a smartphone or tablet, record holographic videos and have the droid respond to voice commands. What makes this robot even more interesting is that it is said to have an adaptive personality and evolves as you interact with it, making it more of a companion than a patrol droid, and all processes and interaction are said to be simple and fun. If you ever wanted a your own Star Wars droid friend, this is the best chance yet.
