BB-8 Analysis, the Star Wars robot you want to buy

Many children’s dream is to be a footballer, an astronaut or to have a horse or a car that can fly. I don’t deny how attractive I find the idea of the flying car, or being an astronaut, but my dream was always to have a robot. R2-D2, to be more precise, which seems perfectly normal for everyone who grew up with Star Wars.

Today is a day that for many fans of the galactic saga is marked on the calendar. It premieres one of the most anticipated films of recent times, and a continuation of a sci-fi classic whose dialoguemany many of us know by heart. Those of you who smile by reading this already know what I’m talking about, so the strength is intense in you. And that’s why I waited until today to tell you about BB-8.

The new android protagonist of the new Star Wars film has all the charisma with which R2 also counted: its unique, simple design, its attractive technology that almost embodied it more as a living being than as a compendium of circuits and put us in perspective d and that he was capable of much more than some other heroes. BB-8 also has a very interesting feature since we saw it in the first teaser: its amazing construction, which almost makes you think that something like this can only be computer effects. Nothing further from reality. I’ve got it on my desk right now.

BB-8, the best Star Wars android we all want

BB-8

The construction of such a robot was perfect for a brand like Sphero: in charge of putting in stores just over a year ago its intelligent sphere robot controlled by smartphone. It was clear that Disney knocked on his door when he thought who could turn the new robot protagonist into real.

And as I count the hours to watch the movie tonight, I think I can assure you that BB-8’s creation is practically perfect. It is not very large, a size slightly larger than a tennis ball, with the head attached magnetically (even off) to the body. The gyroscope controls movements and acceleration, and is – although it may look like a toy, that it is – a whole robot for our house.

-The construction of BB-8 is a faithful reflection of the film-

And is that the whole set is created with exquisite care for details. From the box that contains it, customized to almost look like a box of a real astrodroid, to the base of recharge by induction, customized to mimic the aesthetics of BB-8 and that also serves as decoration when it comes to saving – or exposing – our robot.

Living with a robot at home

Okay, you probably also have a vacuum robot, a Thermomix and other devices that fall into the category. But you’ve never had one like BB-8: movement and speed of use is very simple, controlled from the iPhone/iPad app from which we can make you do some «tricks», like speeding up, drawing figures with movements, piloting it in reverse, noding or denying with your head…

The speed is customizable, being able to choose between speed in travel or maneuverability in turns. I recommend speed, it is a pleasure to see the slowdowns or changes of direction, and still keeps very well the orders we give you from the mobile. We can also control it with the voice, so that we can ask you for things like you going to explore, giving even more the feeling that we are facing a movie android.

-We can change the speed, use holographic messages in augmented reality or control it by voice-

Another feature of BB-8 is to project holographic messages from an expanded reality view that the application owns. We can record our own or see the ones the brand sends us. For example, as the film’s premiere approached, BB-8 received messages from the First Order troops.

One of the most fun features of BB-8 is the free browsing mode. Here we leave the iPhone on the table and it is the robot itself who is in charge of exploring the room in which we are. You can review in real time the recognition pattern that he discovers, where obstacles are marked as helmets of imperial soldiers.

Inductive charging provides our beloved BB-8 with 60 minutes of battery life, and we can get away from it up to 30 meters using a Bluetooth Smart connection, so the battery consumption of our mobile will not be particularly affected.

Yes, this is the droid you were looking for

It is the perfect phrase to define Sphero’s new invention: BB-8 is the perfect gift for any Star Wars fan of any age, and it is to be appreciated the level of detail and affection with which the new characters have been reproduced, with a more than acceptable of 169.99.
