Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid
The Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid beats the company’s previous offering, the rolling BB-8. It has better animations, better sound, is fitted with a real lightsaber and an X-Wing fighter hence, regarded the ultimate Star Wars toy. Here are more features of the Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid you will find impressive.
This droid moves differently compared to previous droids. This is because it uses its trusted tracks to move and is controlled using a dedicated app. The tracks work well on smooth surfaces, including thick, shaggy carpets. Also, being restricted to a round shape means that Sphero has added more detail to its chassis. It is 17 cm tall and feels a little heavier (370 g) compared to previous Sphero droids.
The most impressive factor about its performance is how fast it transitions from two to three legs and back on its own. Also, Sphero has programmed it for more animation features using a smartphone. The droid can rock back and forth and fall as if shocked by a rogue with a push of a button on your smartphone.
Sphero uses sound effects from films to create an authentic Star Wars illusion when using this droid. As such, you will experience whines, whistles and strained motor effects as the droid swivels its head side-to-side. What’s more, it does not rely on your smartphone speaker to release these sound effects, but Sphero has fitted an internal speaker. The sound, lights and motion are all in sync so that any Star Wars enthusiast does not miss out on any action when using Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid.
