While the overall experience isn’t HUGELY different in the operation and software side of things, there is an obvious change in the locomotion of the droids.
BB-9E rolls and moves in a movie identical fashion in what seems to be a magical technological marvel. It’s effortless and so fun to watch him roll around the floor making noises, plus he’s damn speedy!
He also has a stand whereby you can move him in the app without having him physically roll along the floor, it’s like one of those omni-directional platforms but for a droid, so cool. It also facilitates the charging of the unit.
Be sure to go check it out and maybe buy one for yourself.
You will be sure to have a lot of fun!
