SDCC 2016: Battle Worn Sphero BB-8

Comic-Con LogoWho knew the Sphero remote control BB-8 could get any better? It still is controlled by the smartphone app, but it now has the look of battle to it. The days of happiness are over for our friend. His exterior isn’t as polished as it once was. Oh yes, he has some stories to tell. He’s seen sights that are so horrible he can’t even get all the beeps out. It’s okay though, cause he’s still adorable. Who cares that he’s emotionally scarred?!?




In addition to being battle-damaged, this new BB-8 will come with a wristband that will allow you to control the droid with wrist gestures. You won’t even need a smartphone, although I wouldn’t delete that app, as I’m sure there will be more goodies that are added with this release. I wish they would have this thing would have a smart watch app, but I suppose this will do. For now.

No specific release date yet, but if I had to guess, I’d say sometime in November. Get ready to buy the same thing again.

I never stand in front of the elevator doors when they open. All because of the movie The Departed.
