Did you pick up a Sphero BB-8 toy when it hit the stores on Force Friday? Well if you did you're about to get one hell of an update...
The cute little robot is about to start projecting hologram messages that contain The Force Awakens exclusives. You will only be able to see the holograms on your iPad or iPhone though (for now), but you'll start to get messages from C-3PO and R2-D2 and then closer to the release date you'll be seeing exclusive content that relates to The Force Awakens.
Sphero's BB-8 was a huge success when it launched making the company a household name and earning the little droid a place in any self respecting Star Wars Fans heart.
He even launched a BB-8 builders club, where experienced droid designers and builders are crowd sourcing a full size, and fully operational BB-8 robot, the plans to which will be free to fans who want to invest the time and build their own.
