The Sphero Star Wars Force Band was first announced in January. You can use it to control the Sphero BB-8 remote control robot and now, it can do a little more. There’s a combat training mode that makes it feel like the wearer/user is fighting with imaginary weapons such as a blaster or lightsaber and includes the sound effects, which are triggered by specific movements or gestures.
The Sphero Star Wars Force Band will be available for $80 at retail stores like Best Buy, Amazon, The Disney Store and the Apple Store. There will also be a Special Edition of Sphero’s BB-8 along with the Sphero Star Wars Force Band bundle for $200!
