Sphero in New Star Wars Movie

Some superb news from the set of the new Star Wars movie. One of the new droids to be featured is a real robot – a large version of Sphero. Called BB-8, it is a large spherical robot with a smaller head piece that balances on top of the main ball as it rolls around. When the movie is released in December I’ll be in the queue to buy one (or two) for the RobotFun collection. This inspired idea probably came about because the head of Disney, who now own the Star Wars movie rights, also happens to be a business mentor for Orbotix, the makers of Sphero. In the mean time, you can get a taste of the next Star Wars movie simply by having RobotFun visit your home planet!
