The BB-8 R001 model can be controlled from a smartphone both Android / iOS device via Bluetooth. When we connect the robot then the application will include a choice of four menus. Let me explain by categories is as follows:

1.Authentic Movement

We can control the robot to walk in any direction, then the direction is based on the “front” of the BB-8. But can be controlled to turn heads by we can turn to adjust the head before, then go ahead. While walking, the head of the robot is adjusted to always facing forward but they have the option to adjust the BB8’s head to the rear so it looks like the BB-8 is walking backwards. In addition, it also has a special pattern allows the BB-8 looks more like a virtual like as walk in a circle, nodding, head shaking and shock with sound effects.

Authentic Movement via Smartphone Android and iOS

At first, the controls may not be familiar to a bit difficult – if you have experienced a long period of time, it will be easier. But the robot to run in a straight line can be said that it is virtually impossible.


2.Holographic Messaging

Holographic Messaging Features

This is unique features, starting with the need to record videos or clips. Then can be seen via the app, record and view virtual holographic videos with BB-8.


3.Autonomous Behavior: BB-8 has a mind of its own – explore the Star Wars galaxy together.


4.Adaptive Personality: Your BB-8’s unique attitude and actions evolve as you interact


There are also features for listening and responding to the BB-8 to recognize and respond to your voice.



The overall feel is fun fun fun, a complicated toy and impressed with the inside technology. It is intended to look and pay attention to details, perfect for Star Wars fans who were interested in this robot type. I have to checked the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 App-Enabled Droid review is available.

The disadvantage is difficult to control, the price a bit high and if there is a front camera for send pictures while movement to the app – that right –> more awesome.
