Video: Star Wars BB-8 Astromech Droid Remote Control Toy

I happened to run into a cute little remote control BB-8 in the wild, and caught some video of it before it loped off into the trees.

It rolls around, makes little boopy noises and almost but not quite words (like “uh oh”), has preprogrammed gestures and movement patterns plus augmented reality features.

The head is independent of the spherical body via magnets.

Fun! (and cute)
