Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still a few months away but you can feel the power of the Force already!  With endless amounts of merchandise being released in honor of the upcoming film, there is sure to be something for everyone.  But there is one new character who created a splash unlike any other.  Meet BB-8 - the cute little droid who you saw running (or rolling) in the first Force Awakens trailer.

Given BB-8's new found popularity, it is no surprise that there is a lot of merchandise on store shelves already - including the hot app-enabled droid from Sphero.  Although it is basically sold out everywhere at this point, Sphero created a working BB-8 replica droid that is controlled via an app you download on your smartphone or tablet.  It is on the pricy side ($149 MSRP) but once you see it in action you will realize why - the technology is revolutionary.  When it all boils down, you are basically controlling a rolling ball and that is amazing.  You can see the Sphero BB-8 in action and how it works by watching our my latest video above.  Whether your a fan of the Star Wars series or just like BB-8, the Force is certainly strong in this one!  Enjoy!
