Teardown Of BB-8 Droid Toy Explains How It Works

September 9, 2015


That's pretty twisted, even for a Jawa.

This is a video from the folks at uBreakiFix highlighting the inner workings of the new BB-8 droid toy. I'm not going to lie, I was half expecting him to be filled with nothing but The Force. I was wrong though. He's got a gyroscope and some wheels and a magnet inside. The magnet keeps his head on. My head? My neck keeps it on. I still superglued my right arm to the side of my head though just to be safe.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Tara, who is holding out for a full-scale BB-8 toy. One that can hopefully do chores like go get the mail and stuff.
