May the 4th is here! It’s that special time of year where we all gather together to celebrate Star Wars! It’s a big year for Star Wars fans, with the release of The Force Awakens and the upcoming Rogue One. Needless to say, it’s a good time to be a Star Wars fan! Let’s take a closer look at some cool stuff we’ve got in-store to help with the celebration of your favourite franchise.
Do you love BB-8? Of course you do, how could you not? Now you can bring home your own BB-8! This smartphone-controlled droid can explore the galaxy with you for as long as an hour on a single charge. Control him directly or let him explore on his own. BB-8 evolves as you play and will even learn your voice and perk up when you speak to him! You can also make recordings from his point of view and play them back.
In case it’s not clear yet, this is the droid you’ve been looking for! Just check out this video of him in action if you don’t believe us:
