DIY Star Wars BB-8 Robot 

The Sphero ball robot was originally an app controlled robotic ball that connects via Bluetooth to your Android, iOS or Windows devices which has now been modified to create a small copy of the BB-8 robot.

Check out the video below to see the DIY version of the BB-8 robot in action. AS well as the Sphere a few magnets have also bee used to help keep the small version of BB-8’s head in place.

Its creator Christian Poulsen explains :

“A quick one day project, I wanted to build my own functioning Star Wars droid. Using a Sphero, polyurethane foam, magnets and spray paint, I made this little guy using a Sphero Bluetooth RC Ball, CNC polyurethane foam, neodymium magnets.”
