Smartphone app-controlled BB-8 robot replica.

The Sphero BB-8 is the miniature replica of the astromech BB-8 droid from Episode 7 of the Star Wars saga (Star Wars: The Force Awakens). This charming little robot can be controlled from a smartphone or tablet via an app available for free on iOS and Android. The Sphero BB-8 robot carries a battery and recharges directly on its induction base. The battery life reaches one hour once the battery is fully charged. The flight from the app downloaded on smartphone or tablet is provided by Bluetooth waves, with a range of up to 25 m. Fast and manoeuvrable, the Sphero BB-8 can reach a speed of 2 meters per second, or just over 7 km/h (equivalent to the speed of an adult walking with a quick pace). In addition to being fully remotely piloted, the Sphero BB-8 droid offers several fun modes of operation. In Patrol mode, for example, he independently explores his nearby environment by interacting with the different elements of the décor. Vocal Command mode allows it to obey simple commands aloud. It is also possible to entrust him with a video message that he will reproduce as a hologram on the screen of the smartphone or tablet (in augmented reality mode).

A true marvel of technology, the Sphero BB-8 will appeal not only to aficionados of the famous interstellar saga but also to the most tech-savvy, eager to discover how this little prodigy of robotic engineering works. May the force be with you!
