Any kid born in the last 40 years has a touch of Star Wars fever. The movie, the new movie that is, “The Force Awakens”, comes out next week, December 17th. However, if you wanna see the movie on opening day, you’ll likely have to stand in line. A long line. And bear the grunt of pushing, shoving and a nerdfest that will go unparralleled for the rest of the decade. But that’s part of the fun. And to commemorate the launch of the movie I’ve put together a list of high quality Star Wars gifts.
1. Star Wars Foce Awakens BB8 Droid
This isn’t the same BB8 Droid found in the movie, but it is apparently using the same tech, leveraging the IP of Sphero, the robotics company.
The BB8 Droid comes in two flavors: one that can be controlled by way of your smartphone, and the other by joystick. Go with the first one, as it will surely provide a more fulfilling experience and should be billed as the “real deal”. In addition to enjoying a body that moves independently of the head – call it movie magic – the BB8 can listen and respond to your voice, move autonomously, and has a learning component that will adapt over time as you spend, well, time with it.
