http://www.washingtonpost.com/new...ars-movie/

To those who do not know what this toy is or what it can do, please read this:
After the movie comes out, there will be updates to the BB-8 Firmware.................how freaking cool is that?

So the release of the movie will actually have an impact on the product.

Of course. Which never has happened. Like, you already bought the product, then you wake up, the movie comes out, and your product gets new features based on the story.

http://fortune.com/2015/09/03/sph...droid-toy/

TO THOSE WHO ARE BASHING THIS PRODUCT, PLEASE READ.

SPHERO is not a stupid ball rolling around on the floor. Upon further research, it teaches kids how to basic program!!!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYhYb60fTQY


Be aware that based on past experiences Sphero products batteries can't be replaced without breaking the device and the battery may easily die in a year or so, in which case you'll be left with an expensive paperweight.

FORCE FRIDAY!!!!!!!

Finally something useful for Sphero's technology. It would be wicked cool if they had made this interact with the R2D2 Hasbro had out 15 years ago.

There seems to be plenty of stock right now but

1. Kids don't know about BB8 yet because well, the movie hasn't come out yet
2. Kids don't read tech blogs and they haven't seen this thing in real life yet

I think this will sell out come holiday season so I'm going to a keep a few handy

That's about it until supply is sold out and they're no longer being made
