The Force Band, which is due for release on 30 September, straps onto your midi-chlorian-filled wrist and enables you to control your BB-8 droid toy with a series of hand gestures. So basically you can look like a Jedi and a pratt and still enjoy controlling your new speherical robot.
In this new video from Vanity Fair, a bevy of playful kittens test out the new Star Wars BB-8 droid toy — and somehow manage to DESTROY it.
In addition to providing more details on the Force Band, Sphero is also updating the BB-8 Droid toy line with a new special edition battle-worn version of the toy. Basically, it’s the same cute and quirky little droid, but it looks as though it has done twelve rounds with Mike Tyson to give it that “worn out” look.
From the five different modes on offer with the Force Band, two are designed to give instant control over Sphero’s BB-8 Droid toy. Droid Control Mode allows wearers to use the ‘Force’ to push, pull and control BB-8, while Robot Control Mode allows control of other Sphero robots powered by Bluetooth Smart.
