BB9E App-Enabled Droid ReviewDisney and robotics company Sphero have unveiled BB-9E. BB-9E or “BB-H8” is the evil version of the lovable BB-8 droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Last Jedi’s’ new sinister droid will be on the list of top Christmas toys for 2017.
BB9E is a black and grey 4.4-inch app-controlled robot with a ominous glowing red eye and a magnetically-attached retro head. The app-enabled robot toy acts similar to BB8. It has pre-programmed moves and can be driven using a smartphone app, available for both iOS and Android. Control it with your smart device and keep it rolling optimally through holographic simulations with the Droid Trainer.
Sphero has also created a robot toy inspired by the vintage R2-D2 robot first seen in the 1977 “Star Wars.” The new R2-D2 toy is priced at $179.99, and BB-9E is priced at $149.99. These Star Wars droids can be controlled using an iOS and Android app and will be must-have holiday gift ideas for December.
Buy BB-9E, BB-8 and R2-D2 from Sphero itself, Amazon, Apple, Firebox and John Lewis starting from 00:01am on Friday 1 September.
