Sphero Droid Family…These Are The Droids You Are Looking For

Sphero and Star Wars are proud to announce new App-Enabled Droids for you to take home and adore. Sphero had previously released the exquisitely awesome (I can say this, I own one) BB-8 App-Enabled Droid and has now added a R2D2 and BB-9E to their lineup. Each Droid perfectly parlays their presence from the Star Wars films into a Droid that you can control from the confines of your device. This trio of Droids is truly a technological marvel that will be sure to entertain you and your friends or pets. I can at least attest that my German Shepherd and cats have also enjoyed the hours of exploration that BB-8 has provided. BB-8 is a sturdy Droid and has survived so far; no battle damage has accumulated on this steadfast Sphero. Check out the press release below for more information on each droid.

R2D2 App-Enabled Droid


This is the Droid you’re looking for.

R2-D2™ is an astromech droid in the Rebel Alliance from a galaxy far, far away….

Control your Droid with your smart device or watch it patrol on its own. Artoo’s signature front and rear LED lights are fully functional, and an integrated speaker means the beeps and boops come right from R2-D2 itself.

R2-D2 is a skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot’s assistant with many features to interact with and explore. Explore the Star Wars™ galaxy, roam iconic ship interiors, and more through augmented reality. Watch Artoo interact with other Star Wars App-Enabled Droids by Sphero, and view films from the Star Wars saga with R2-D2 reacting by your side.
