Our Thoughts

As you guys and girls know by now, we already tried out the R2-D2 variant of the Sphero droids, which you can see HERE.

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.
