Star Wars Toys: BB-8 App controlled Droid

Star Wars BB-8, Droid, Toy

The BB-8 is a robotic toy shaped like a ball and controlled using an iPhone. It is created by Sphero and based from the upcoming movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The toy is basically a ball with a head that is attached to the ball using magnets. The head also has wheels so that the robot toy can roll around while the head stays on top.

The robot ball is as big as a baseball that fits in the palm of a hand. Both the head and the body are made of plastic. It is also equipped with LEDs inside that allows it to light up in dark areas.

BB-8 droid will show different expressions based on your interaction. It can even perk up when you give voice commands. Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously, make up your own adventure and guide BB8 yourself, or create and view holographic recordings.

The BB-8 is a great toy, however be careful the plastic can easily break and it's a bit hard on the wallet at $149 on Amazon.

Pixar's Finding Nemo was one of their most popular films back in 2003 now after 13 years here comes the sequel "Finding Dory". Ellen DeGeneres will reprise the role of Dory. Hank, an Octopus with only seven tentacles will be played by Ed O'Neill (Modern Family), and Bailey (beluga whale) is played by Ty Burrell (Modern Family).

At Disney’s D23 Expo Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton gave some juicy details about Finding Dory.

“I wanted to know that if this charming, forgetful fish ever got lost again, that she would be okay. That she would find her way home. And at the end of ‘Finding Nemo,’ I wasn’t confident about that. So that’s when I knew I had another story”, Stanton said.

The film is about an ocean sanctuary where wounded animals are treated and released back into the wild.

In the short teaser of the movie Finding Dory, it shows Dory and Marlin, along with his son Nemo (Alexander Gould). Dory is having trouble with her instincts which is trying to guide her home, but she forgot where or why she needs to go home. Eventually, she remembers that her mother and father have no idea where she is and she has to go find them. Though Marlin doesn’t want to go on another journey, he eventually relents and states that he “knows a guy” to get them across the ocean.

The movie takes place only 6 months after the events of Finding Nemo, and is set largely in the Marine Biology Institute of California.

 Release date: June 17, 2016

The representative said "Minions speak 'Minionese, which is a random combination of many languages and nonsense words and sounds. We're aware of a very small number of customers who have been in touch regarding this toy, and we apologize for any confusion or offense to those who may have interpreted the sounds as anything other than gibberish. The allegation that this toy is saying any offensive phrase is not true. Any perceived similarities to actual English words are purely coincidental."
