This advanced and authentic little droid moves smoothly, guided by your smart phone or tablet. B-88 recognizes and responds to your voice and has a personality individual to your droid that evolves as you play and have your own adventures together. On patrol setting BB-8 patrols the area autonomously and, perhaps its most exciting function, the BB-8 allows you to record and view your own holographic messages.
