You can now sit through Star Wars: The Force Awakens with your friendly Sphero BB-8 unit
Sphero has updated the company's BB-8 app, which enables the little friendly droid to enjoy Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The connected droid will be able to react to content on-screen with a combination of sound and motion. The new feature, titled "Watch With Me" prepares BB-8 for the movie, which can now be purchased on Blue-ray.
As expected, you'll need to have a copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens already purchased and ready for viewing. For those who may be on their first run of the latest instalment, the app (opens in new tab) will also display relevant information on-screen to help those who may struggle to follow the main plot.
As an added bonus, should you not have BB-8, you can snag the Sphero unit for just $129 through April 10.
