  • Overview

    Bringing a new part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens into your home, BB-8 is the app-enabled Droid whose authentic movements are at your control with iPhone or iPad.

    BB-8 relates to your interactions, showing a range of expressions and actually perking up at the sound of your voice commands. Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously. Or make up your own adventure and guide BB-8 yourself. Even create and view holographic recordings. It’s now possible to explore the galaxy with your own trusty Astromech Droid by your side. BB-8 is more than a toy—it’s your companion.

    Rather than using the Force, BB-8 is powered by induction charging and connects via Bluetooth Smart BLE with your iPhone, iPad, or other device. Its tough polycarbonate shell keeps it safe from water and the dark side.

    Highlights

    Authentic movement that you guide with your iPhone or iPad

    Listening and response capabilities let BB-8 recognize and react to your voice

    Autonomous behavior gives BB-8 a mind of its own as you explore the Star Wars galaxy together

    Adaptive personality means BB-8’s attitude and actions evolve as you interact

    Did you notice?

    BB-8's unique personality is adaptive, changing as you play.

      For Star Wars fan( or kids)

      THIS IS the Droid you're looking for. This is the ultimate gift for your kids or a friend who is addicted to Star Wars(like me). Even though we knew this is sim THIS IS the Droid you're looking for. This is the ultimate gift for your kids or a friend who is addicted to Star Wars(like me). Even though we knew this is simply a high tech, collectible toy but when you play with BB-8, there are no ways to stop you from playing it(except when your phone or the droid battery died), at some point, I thought that BB-8 was alive and he was trying to communicate with me. That's what a toy should be, bringing customers the film experience before it even out in the theatre. In my opinion, this is the ultimate toy to buy for your kids or as a gift to a Star Wars fan.

      BB-8 is the droid to own!!

      I just happened to be at the Apple Store over the weekend, and saw BB-8 on the shelf. There were only 3 droids left, and since I'm a Star Wars fan, I decided to I just happened to be at the Apple Store over the weekend, and saw BB-8 on the shelf. There were only 3 droids left, and since I'm a Star Wars fan, I decided to pick one up. I didn't have any background information on the product, or on the company that produced it. It turns out, it wasn't necessary because BB-8 is well worth every cent I paid for him. I think this is the ultimate collectible to own if you are a Star Wars fan. I was so impressed with the little guy and how easy the application is to work, that I introduced him to my two nephews. They both fell in love with him. So, of course I had to purchase an extra two BB-8s for each boy, which they will receive for Christmas this year. I'm glad I purchased BB-8 when I did because I think this will be the toy/collectible to own this holiday season. Already retailers that carry him have sold out, and he is becoming harder and harder to find. I'm very happy with my purchase(s)!!
