The Sphero R2-D2 is an exact replica of the famous droid, with details that can rival some of the best models around. In contrast to those collectible items, this one features 4 motors that let it proceed like the astromech droid from the movies, switching its head to create meaningful actions, cruising around the room with its wheeled feet, and also waddling in position with its front leg retracted. To put it simply, this thing can move, which makes it quite a dedicated replica, both for appearance and functionality.
As with lots of Sphero’s other tech toys, the machine can be drivable when combined with the partner app, letting you drive it at home for whenever you want.
In contrast to BB-8, the Sphero R2-D2 features incorporated speakers, letting it create blooping and bleeping sounds from the droid itself, rather than having it emerge of whatever gadget the app is operating on. The robot’s dome head is full of actual blinking illumination and shining sections, instead of just being colored decoration, being sure it consistently mirrors its film equivalent.
