Ahhh love for robots is something that I wish, I could have all the worlds robots. But unfortunately this is only a dream, but people who dream and are consistent about it, accomplish it one day or die trying it. Well I recently came across the BB8 Droid, which is really amazing droid for adults and children.
The BB8 Droid is a creation of Sphere and is completely controllable from a smartphone or a tablet. You can even control BB8 Droid with voice commands or it can roam autonomously exploring its environment. BB8 can run for an hour between charges, taking three hours to reach full capacity, and can travel up to 30m from the user at speeds of up to 5mph. The funny and interesting thing I liked about the BB8 Droid is the head. The head stares in the direction of travel, moving automatically and pops off when crashes into a wall.
The smartphone controller app is filled with Star Wars noises, sights and sounds, uses augmented reality to show BB8 projecting holograms onto your floor. If you like to read more about it, you can head over to theGuardian.
