The Force Awakens’ BB-8 Can be Made out of a Sphero Ball

Christian Poulsen is an industrial designer, and he has created his very own BB-8 droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens using the Sphero Robotic Ball for iOS and Android devices.

All Poulsen had to do was to repaint the ball itself and carve out a new head using foam to create his very own mini-BB-8 working roller droid. The result is pretty fantastic as you can see in the video above. You can try to follow Christian’s DIY tutorial to create your very own working BB-8 today!
