Remember how much fun the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Droid was when it first came out? Well, imagine all that fun stuffed into a package the size of a ping pong ball. That’s the new Sphero Mini, a remote-controlled little ball that you can steer using an app on your iPhone or Android phone. Taking things a step further, you don’t even have to use your hands to steer it. Instead, a crazy new feature lets you control the Sphero Mini using different expressions on your face!
