Back in November my husband bought himself a Sphero BB-8 app-enabled droid. He picked it up off of Amazon.com. At $150USD it wasn’t exactly a cheap purchase, but he had some Amazon credit saved up, so it was sort of free. I mean I could have talked him into using the credit for something less frivolous, but it’s nice to splurge sometimes, right? I knew my husband had been eyeing the little droid since Sphero first announced that it would be released. And, well, let’s just say I didn’t exactly discourage him from buying one. I really wanted to check the darn thing out. The BB-8 Sphero looked like something I had dreamed of owning as a kid. Little semi-autonomous robot thing? Heck yes, please.
