It is no secret that the Smiths are a family of geeks. We love it all – especially technology. Sphero recently released some new App-enabled Droids and we have been in awe of them! I mean, what Star Wars nerd doesn’t want their own R2-D2, BB-8, or the new BB-9E to follow them around and do their bidding. We were thrilled when Sphero sent us a couple of these to check out – and we can’t stop playing with them!
From the moment we opened them up, we were blown away. I am going to be honest, I thought it was going to be really time consuming to get them synced with my phone, but it took just a few seconds. Within a couple minutes, I was making BB-9E roll around my house making beeping noises (and drive my dogs crazy). One of the coolest things about these droids is that they will interact with the Star Wars movies! There are no words to describe the feeling I get when watching a movie and I hear R2-D2 chattering away.
This is the Droid™ you’re looking for. R2-D2™ is an Astromech Droid™ in the Rebel Alliance from a galaxy far, far away…. The specialized tech in R2-D2 is unlike any other Astromech Droid, making it as authentic as the trusty Artoo you’ve come to know and love.
R2-D2 is one of my favorite parts of the Star Wars films, so I was so happy to have my own! I already thought he was super cool – and then I discovered the retractable foot and it put it over the edge. Not only that, but his front and rear lights are fully functional. One of my favorite things that he does is Artoo is amazing, and I love him. I wish that I could take him with me everywhere that I go.
There’s a new disturbance in the Force. BB-9E™ is a menacing Astromech Droid of the First Order. This vigilant and intimidating Droid is always on high alert. This is NOT the Droid you’re looking for…it’s the Droid that’s looking for you.
BB-9E is the most badass droid I have ever seen – and I have seen a lot of droids. He sits in his display on my desk when he is not rolling around the house because I just love looking at him. Admittedly, he is a little hard to control at first, but within minutes, I got the hang of him. He just moves around so fast that it took some getting used to. As much as I love the light side (I swear I do), I am a dark side girl at heart. That is probably why this App-Enabled BB-9E has quickly become my favorite part of my geek collection.
