Meet BB-8 - the app-enabled Droid that's as authentic as it is advanced, and the latest entry in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. BB-8 has something unlike any other robot - an adaptive personality that changes as you play. Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and even perk up when you give voice commands. Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously, make up your own adventure and guide BB-8 yourself, or create and view holographic recordings.
It’s now possible to explore the galaxy with your own trusty Astromech Droid by your side. BB-8 is more than a toy - it’s your companion.
If you're into tech (and if you're reading Gear Live, then it's safe to say that you are,) you'll want to check out Best Buy this Saturday afternoon. Coming to select Best Buy stores will be the Best Buy Special Holiday Shopping Event - yep, the holiday shopping season is being kicked off at Best Buy in a majoy way. In fact, this is Best Buy's biggest shopping event of the year. It all goes down on Saturday, November 7th. What can you expect? Read on!
We have a bunch of Star Wars BB-8 Droids, and we are giving some away! In this episode, we open up the BB-8 Sphero, which is the amazing Star Wars toy that is app-enabled, controlled by dedicated iOS and Android apps. This is going to be the biggest Star Wars toy from The Force Awakens, and will likely be the big frenzy this holiday season. We open it up, show you how it looks, and walk you through getting it all set up.
You can pick up the BB-8 Sphero Droid now.
Remember that BB-8 Star Wars Droid made by Sphero that took over the Internet back on Force Friday? Well, we thought we'd bring you guys a giveaway so you can win a Star Wars BB-8 Sphero Droid of your very own! They are hard to find, but we've got two of them here that we're giving away to two of our YouTube subscribers. I've teamed up with two of my favorite YouTubers, Chris Pirillo and Erica Griffin, to bring this giveaway to you.
Rules to enter are listed below, or you can just watch the video for all the details! Enjoy!
