(From Gizmodo) Sphero has released an update to its BB-8 app, enabling the tiny toy droid to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie along with you, and to react to what’s happening on screen with sounds and motion.
If you’re having a tough time finding someone willing to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens with you for the 60th time, you no longer need to resort to extortion or bribery with your friends. Instead, you can just dust off your little droid.
Once you’ve updated the Sphero BB-8 app, you’ll find a new entry among its various play modes called ‘Watch With Me’ that gets BB-8 ready to enjoy the flick.
You’ll also need to make sure that the app has access to your device’s microphone, since it’s your smartphone or tablet that will be listening along to the movie, not the little droid itself.
