9to5Rewards: Sphero’s Star Wars BB-8 smartphone-controlled droid [Giveaway]


This week’s 9to5Rewards partner is Wellbots, a US-based online retailer that specializes in smart products like drones, robots, wearables, home automation devices, connected toys and more.

The company has the smartphone-controlled Sphero BB-8 Star Wars Droid to give away to 9to5Toys readers this week. 

The BB-8 by Sphero stands about 5-inches tall, has a max speed of 4.5 mph, and is controlled with your iPhone (or other smartphone) using a companion app from Sphero, or by using voice commands.

This is your chance to own and operate your own version of the latest Star Wars droid. Check it out in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  The Sphero BB-8 App-enabled Droid is a Star Wars inspired droid that is capable of responding to your voice and commands.  The droid is equipped with adaptive technology that allows its reactions and noises to change based on the interactions it has with you. The direction the droid travels is controlled using an Android or iOS smart device. Experience the fun of having your own operational Star Wars inspired droid!
