Sphero reveals new app enabled Star Wars driods, Evil BB-8?

Sphero adds 2 new Droids to the Star Wars lineup! Each droid has different holographic environments to explore. They will work on iOS or Android and the Force band that was released last year. BB-9E is being called the “Evil Twin” of BB-8 which is a bit unfair. We will have to wait until Star Wars: The Last Jedi to see what role BB-9E will play. Its easy to notice the all black design but if you look carefully you’ll notice some LED lights. In case you’re more of a old school Star Wars fan, Sphero has a R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid. Most of us grew up with R2-D2 from the original trilogy so it makes since to include it it in the lineup. Just like the other drones, R2 can be controlled with the App and through augmented reality and the Droid Trainer accessory.
