If you own Sphero’s remote controlled BB-8 and a copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you can now watch the film together like the besties that you are. If you update the BB-8 app on your phone there should be a new “Watch with Me” feature, which will allow BB-8 to react to the film while you both watch.
Who knows if he’ll be an unruly movie patron, but I’m not going to lie about this feature being very intriguing. I’ll definitely update the app, strap the little dude into his charging dock, and fire up The Force Awakens sometime this weekend. If you do the same just make sure you give the app access to your device’s mic.
