In addition to classic R2-D2 droid from Star Wars, Sphero has also released app-enabled BB-9E droid. Need some Force from the dark side? Let’s keep checking.
This is an officially licensed and highly exquisite app-enabled droid inspired by BB-9E from the universe of Star Wars. The droid measures 7.3cm wide by 9cm tall and weighs approx 223g. As we can see from the images, it perfectly presents us BB-9E, a black-plated astromech droid in the service of the First Order. Unlike the BB-8 droid, the BB-9E features a squarer domed head and the glossy black exterior emits the power of the dark side of the Force. Meanwhile, the compact form factor allows it to freely wander on the floor of your house.
Using built-in Bluetooth technology the BB-9E droid wirelessly connects with your smartphone or tablet, so you can effortlessly control it with your mobile device, and its augmented reality Droid Trainer allows it to keep rolling optimally. Furthermore, with its app you can also explore holographic environments such as the First Order’s Supremacy Meta Star Destroyer and the galaxy from Star Wars.
Moreover, when you watch Star Wars films, your BB-E9 will react by your side, and it also interacts with other Sphero’s Star Wars droids including the BB-8 and R2-D2 droids.
The app-enabled BB-9E droid is priced at $149.99 USD. If you’re interested, jump to Amazon for its more details.
