I wonder if Sphero will make a toy/device...

theres 3 or 4 guys already in the process of building the soccer droid as we call him lol there is quite a few great ideas on how to make him work, i would be surprised in 3 months if we see real good replicas rolling around, once is being 3d printed as we speak
Fan made video:
Star Wars vs Indiana Jones droid chase!
I hope Bb-8's personality is great and she (I guess?) is useful, because I love the design.
I read somewhere, that BB-8 is completely practical effects, which makes me very happy. Practical for the win!
it makes my gears in my head start spinning, how the heck do they make that work>!?
A giant sphero with a swivel head attached
its' a female droid from what i am hearing.
I wonder exactly how it's attached,I mean I don't see any wires and the whole thing looks like it's simply a small droid pod on a spinning soccer ball
Just how big is this droid? Mark Hamill discusses toying around with the actual prop on the set. I wonder if it is actually very small? In the trailer it looks like R2's size but that could be a perspective playing tricks.
it could be two pieces and the top part is magnectically attached or something using a sort of WIFI to be two parts.
He might be small enough to pick him up with two hands.
The guys on the replica forum got word the lower ball is between 18-20"
So if that's true this driod will be skittle over 2ft talll
...you have no idea how complicated this kind of prop is
I didn't think it was fully practical but it makes sense in hindsight. It just looked too real in the teaser.
I was joking
Fan made video. This is some good work. Good hint of how fun BB can be.
Makes me like that little droid even more than I already did!
It's also hilarious because I saw a lot of complaints saying stuff like..
"A droid like that wouldn't even work/work in that type of environment"
And the vimeo video was really cool!
Is this the remote controlled BB-8 toy I was imagining?
