Remote BB-8 Is the Droid You're Looking For & the One You Can Buy

Check out the new remote droid you'll want to purchase.

This Friday, September 4, is Force Friday. A bunch of new Star Wars products tied to The Force Awakens will go on sale. One item is a remote BB-8 droid that can patrol your house and you can control with your phone.

Check out the video from the manufacturer, Sphero.

BB-8 is said to retail for $149.99. You can find more information on Sphero's website HERE. You can't pre-order it yet but you'll be able to purchase it there on Friday as well as Best Buy and Apple retail stores.

$150 might seem like a lot but from what little we've seen of BB-8, it sure looks like they've captured its essence here. I know I want one now.
