Sphero Star Wars R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid
You drive and control this very special little R2D2 with your smart device that will also give "holographic simulations" on the Millennium Falcon or Obi-Wan's house. R2D2's endearing beeps and boops are onboard the robot itself, so the sounds come from it's speakers and of course, it has front and rear LED lights. This is more or less like an RC device run with your phone or i-pad. It can be set up to patrol your room and it will react to Star War films as you watch them. The company promised new apps later in the year to allow kids at beginning, medium and advanced levels to program. These have just been made available and we have not yet had time to try the additions. Limited and pricey for what it does right now, but very sweet if R2D2 is your fav!
