The company Sphero made huge profits this holiday season as its Star Wars Force Awakens robotic droid BB-8 was selling like hot cakes. Looks like Sphero is trying to maintain the momentum by the release of its new product named – Force Band. The Force Band will let the BB-8 be controlled through gestures. The Force Band is in form of a wristband.
The Force Band will make it the first product that is not smartphone dependent for working of a Sphero toy.
The price of the product has not been announced yet, but it shall be available in the Fall of 2016.
Sphero also announced a different version of the BB-8, the battle worn version.
