Sphero launches new programmable Star Wars robots – including R2-D2!

Sphero has been making excellent programmable robots for years, and last year everybody went nuts for their gorgeous little BB-8. And rightly so. Now we’re getting a new range, adding a new BB-9E (an evil twin to BB-8) and everybody’s classic favourite, R2-D2. The detailing on Artoo is excellent – including a third leg that drops out to move across difficult terrain.
