I still don’t own the Sphero BB-8 toy, a miniature and remote-controlled replica of the droid in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I still haven’t seen the movie yet, either, but don’t tell anyone. In any case, the toy is now on sale from Amazon for just $123, down from the standard retail price of $150.
Everyone I know who owns one – and that includes several folks in the office and one of my best friends – loves it. You can control the BB-8 with an iOS or Android device and the droid can recoginize your voice, record and view holographic videos (using augmented reality) and can even watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens with you. Want to bundle it? Amazon is selling the Blu-ray of the movie with the toy for $147.95.
