I waited impatiently to get my own Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droid! I had watched the Sphero product videos and was amazed at what this cute little guy can do. I'm a gadget nerd and had to get my hands on this! Unfortunately, my expectations were too high.

First, let me start off by saying BB-8 is very cute. That part is true. I love the look, the design and the shiny finish. It is made of plastic, but appears to be good quality. It's very user friendly and you can be playing with BB-8 within minutes. The only set-up required is to charge BB-8 and download the app.

What can BB-8 do? Once you download the free app, you can:
"Drive" This feature of the app lets you control BB-8 as if you were using a joystick.
"Message" Record and play holographic messages.
"Patrol" When you select patrol, BB-8 goes exploring on his own.

BB-8 has the capability of responding to 10 preset voice commands by going to the settings in the app, such as "wake up", "watch out", "go explore" "go to sleep". I was expecting more than 10 voice commands. Siri has spoiled me. I have heard, but cannot verify, that the voice commands only work with iOS devices. If this is accurate, that's a huge drawback for anyone without an iPhone or iPad.

BB-8 is very cute (I know, I'm saying it again), has a great personality and is entertaining to watch as he rolls across the floor. That is about the extent of the entertainment.

I feel I was misled by the promotional videos. I was under the impression that BB-8 can "detect" when he is going to run into an object, stop himself and change directions; or, perhaps, adapt to his surroundings and learn where objects are.

I'm a longtime Star Wars fan who is into tech and, yes, hyped for Episode VII. Considering purchasing BB-8? First, have a compatible smartphone and be aware that it recharges via USB. Taking the price of the Sphero alone at about $129, the Star Wars treatment and BB-8 personality (BB-8 head, design and app sounds) are worth the additional cost.

Just another opinion in this set of reviews, I can share what I really enjoyed about BB-8:
+ The design - Some Star Wars desktop statues can go for a much higher cost than this, but this obviously allows you to do so much more than just displaying it on your desktop.
+ The packaging - simple and secure packaging in a nice design. It's Disney + Star Wars. Easy to start playing with it out of the box.
+ The accessories - I prefer a USB cable over another AC adapter. The cradle is detailed and provides a secure and clean charging platform for BB-8. The magnetic BB-8 head has wheels to help rotate 360 degrees.
+ The interactivity - The downloadable app allows you to control BB-8 directly, listen to the cool sounds of BB-8, has a camera to record augmented reality messages and listens to voice commands. Surely will be upgraded in the future with more!

It's super fun to direct and control BB-8 around your home for your friends, family, pets and other BB-8s! The charger and BB-8 unit has lights to indicate charging or when BB-8 is being expressive. See the photos I've included for more details.

The $149.99 MSRP may be restrictive to some, but if you have some money that you can put into having one piece of Star Wars Episode VII memorabilia, the Sphero BB-8 is something great to consider. I had no problems with operation. Enjoyable and to me, worth it!

I picked mine up today and was a bit disappointed by what this "droid" can actually do. First a few things it can't do that the product video makes it seem like it can:

-There is no speaker or camera on the droid itself. It can not make any sounds or hear you. The actual app on the phone makes noises but nothing comes from the droid.

-When the droid is on patrol mode it just randomly rolls around and bumps into things. It doesn't actual learn the room or do anything more than pick random directions, bump into objects, and then go in other random directions.

-The head is consonantly falling off as it collides with objects. Would be amazing if you could just roll close to your head and it would pop on but you have to stop what you're doing and manually put it back each time.

+One positive here is the boost mode is pretty fast and fun.

It's a fun little toy but you're not getting a whole lot for this price tag. A little camera on the droid that you could watch on the app and speakers on the droid would have made this a five star product.

Fun toy for a short time. The video shows the droid playing around a dog. After a few minutes of driving with a dog in the house the BB8 will pick up all the dog hair around and there is no way to disassemble and clean the droid.

This gets 5/5 ot 9/10.

First, the bad. Unfortunately, the unit suffers from some mild "false advertising" from what I can see, the toy does not "learn" from your interactions, in any way that I can reasonably tell. Plus, the advertising would lead you to think it has some time of obstacle detection when really it's just an accelerometer (a hard bump will cause it to flash red and it will emote). Finally, I'm not sure it's a criticism or a requirement of the design (probably the latter, friction = coeff*normal force) but the head's magnet is only strong enough for moderate bumps, so about 1/20 times the head can pop off during operation, but still operates fine. The biggest of all of my complaints: the toy has no speakers of it's own, so any noises it makes are completely driven by the app on your mobile device.

Now the good. Have you seen how freaking cute this cat is? LOOK HOW HAPPY THIS DROID-LOVING CAT IS.

Yes, I'm an undergrad mechanical engineer, and I wanted the toy for science and all that, but I really truly brought this Primarily because I knew it would be THE ULTIMATE CAT TOY. Rick (the cat) absolutely loves it, he stalks it, he sniffs it, he pounces it - and when he pounces it I count a kill if the head comes off. If you have a cat who loves chasing things YOU MUST BUY THIS TOY.

The toy is very good on a range of surfaces, but does best on thin carpet. The rollers on the head will collect lint but thats very easy to clean off. The toy is a lot of fun just to hold and mess with, the gyroscope tries to keep the unit "upright" while it is powered, so you can have fun tossing it up in the air, putting spin on it, etc. - spin it on the kitchen floor like a top, it just keeps going.
