Let’s face it, every time a Jedi or a bad guy waves their hand and makes things move or come to them, we all nerd out and wish we could use The Force to do our own good or evil deeds. The folks over at Sphero have now made it possible for you to experience the awesome power of The Force with a new gadget called “Force Band.”
Force Band ($79.99) has several features that should keep users geeking well through the holiday season and the good news is that you don’t HAVE to have Sphero’s BB-8 droid to enjoy it. (That being said…. read on….)
The Force is strong with you. Channel it with the Star Wars™ Force Band™ by Sphero. Designed with an authentic Star Wars look and feel, the Force Band fastens to your wrist and allows you to enhance your native Force powers.
- DROID CONTROL MODE: Let’s us use The Force to push, pull and control everyone’s favorite droid from The Force Awakens, BB-8
- FORCE TRAINING MODE: You get to follow commands from BB-8 to master awesome Jedi Knight abilities.
- COMBAT TRAINING MODE: Let’s you use your imagination to wield a Lightsaber, battle with a blaster or channel The Force.
- FORCE AWARENESS MODE: Let’s you uncover digital Holocrons in your environment and collect them all in the app. (Yes it’s better than Pokemon GO!)
- ROBOT CONTROL MODE: Allows you to use the Force Band to drive other Sphero robots powered by Bluetooth Smart
As we stated above, you can do a bunch of really cool stuff with Force Band without Sphero’s BB-8 Droid but let’s face it, ya gotta get the lil’ guy to have even MORE fun. If you don’t currently own Sphero’s BB-8 Droid they are offering a package where you can preorder the Force Band AND a special edition, battle-damaged BB-8 for $200. (There is a REALLY cool new feature where you can watch Star Wars: The Force Awaken with your Droid. Set BB-8 in his charging base, start the movie, and watch his reactions along with the film!) You can order your Special Edition BB-8 / Force Band combo pack HERE.
Sphero’s FORCE BAND will be in stores on September 30, 2016 but you can preorder yours HERE.
