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.

Ratings and Reviews
If you’re like us, hanging out with a real droid is high on your Star Wars wish list. With this app and the amazing remote-controlled BB-8 toy from Sphero, you can bring everyone’s favourite new sidekick to your galaxy. Just tap the virtual joystick to guide him, or you can let him patrol the perimeter alone. He even responds to your voice commands! It’s an adorably entertaining experience you have to see to believe.
Friendly little droid
BB-8 does have an appeal, far greater than the app. Yes he interacts, responds to commends but only does so once, you have to repeat the command constantly rather than saying it once and he performs that action until another is given. Perhaps a little more apparent self determination through the retention of commands would be better. Still thoroughly enjoy his company and when fully understood will be a brilliant addition to the department at School!
Great App 👍👍👍
I’ve had BB-8 since day and have always had Great fun with Him, cheapest pet I’ve ever owned and updates have always kept me going back to use the app. So much so I’ve got an R2 D2 coming to keep him company. 😉😉😉
