If you want the coolest smartphone-controlled remote toy on the planet, get yourself a BB-8. This little Star Wars droid toy mystifies as it rolls around with a head that appears to magically stay in place. Of course, if you want a great little smartphone-controlled toy that will actually be delivered anytime in 2015, snag a Sphero 2.0 on Amazon.

The Sphero 2.0 “App-Enabled Robotic Ball” is just that: a little robotic ball that you can control remotely with your smartphone. Seriously… watch this video and tell us it’s not one of the coolest and cutest little toys you’ve ever seen:

It might not be quite as awesome as the BB-8, but it’s also not as expensive as the BB-8. The Sphero 2.0 will only set you back $124 instead of $180, and it ships for free on Amazon.
