This app-controlled droid is modeled after the Star Wars BB-8 Droid from the latest movie.
It doesn’t just roll around your apartment looking cute, there are some pretty high-tech features.
The BB-8 Droid has voice recognition, allowing it to respond to voice commands.
It also has the capability for holographic messaging! Crazy right? You can record and view virtual holographic videos with the BB-8. If that doesn’t impress your friends, there isn’t much in the tech world that will.
This Droid gets even more advanced though. It’s programmed with an adaptive personality. It learns from its interactions with you and its behaviors will evolve as you interact more and more.
This product is a very cool experiment in artificial intelligence while also being cute, fun, and a great tech gift idea.
The BB-8 can be guided with your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet and also acts based on autonomous or automatic behavior- it has a bit of a mind of its own when you’re not controlling it directly! this makes it more fun and exciting to play around with.
The droid is quite small, so it’ll fit well into any indoor room (you can check out the video above to see the exact size), and of course you can take it outside as well if you prefer.
The BB-8 Droid has a top speed of 4.5 mph (faster than most people walk normally) and a Bluetooth range of 100 feet.
