Meet BB-8™ - your very own app-enabled Astromech Droid.
Over the years, the experience of Star Wars™ has always lived on screen and in our imaginations. The characters, worlds, and adventures have become an unforgettable part of our lives, and toys have kept that magic in our hearts long after we’ve left the theater. Thanks to advancements in technology, it is now possible to bring a new part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens™ into your home in an incredibly authentic way. For the first time, a real Droid™ is finally making its way into your world.
BB-8 is playful, personable, and true to the Star Wars™ galaxy. His unique traits begin to shine the second he is awake. Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and even perk up when you give voice commands. 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 with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. His tough polycarbonate shell keeps him safe from water and the dark side.
Slide your finger on the driving pad to guide your Droid. BB-8 will go wherever you point and hold, and he’ll even react to collisions. If you want to see more of his personality, enter the droid commander, choose an icon, and BB-8 will show off a range of expressions.
Tap into Patrol to send BB-8 off on his own. His autonomous behavior allows him to move around, get familiar with your space, and investigate the surroundings. Tap the play button to get BB-8 on the move.
WATCH WITH ME
The Watch With Me feature allows your Droid to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with you. Select this option when BB-8 is in his charging base, start the movie, and watch his reactions along with the film.
DRAW & DRIVE
Draw & Drive lets you trace a route with your finger in the app for BB-8 to follow in real life.
No Droid is complete without holographic messaging. Now you can make your own thanks to BB-8. Record a video and BB-8 will transform it into a virtual hologram.
This is the Droid you’re looking for. Find it at Sphero.com and make it yours.

BB 8. My Buddy
What an excellent companion. He’s a lot of fun to interact with and enjoy him a lot. Very easy to control. Look forward to possibly programming him for more tasks sometime.
Voice commands not working yet
I am trying to enable the voice commands but every time I am trying to enable asks me for a tutorial and once I took it and then saying no, it goes back to the main menu... getting frustrated.
