Yes, BB-8 has been without a doubt one of the star gifts of the past Christmas and a whim for that child that all of us passionate about technology have inside. And soon its owners will be in for a pleasant surprise with their Droid, as he will react passionately to what happens in ‘Star Wars: The Awakening of Strength’ while watching the movie with you.
Yes, it’s a surprise that Sphero, the robot’s manufacturer, had it up his sleeve and it has arrived by means of an app update that incorporates the ‘Watch with me’ function that prepares BB-8 to enjoy the film by your side and living it as if it were again the protagonist of the film.
This new feature arrives precisely with the release of the DVD and Blu-ray movie in the United States and uses the iPhone’s microphone to follow the movie’s progress closely, enjoying each sequence passionately. Those who have already tried out the BB-8 company as a movie companion, however, recommend placing our friend in its charging base given the length of the movie.
Although this app update comes just in time for the release of the film in the formats mentioned, the truth is that BB-8 will react in the same way in any other format , in case you can’t take it anymore and want to see it in action when the film arrives to iTunes next April 8th.
