Hacking the Star Wars BB-8 toys

Hacking the Star Wars BB-8 toys

Anyone else get the Star Wars BB-8 toys this past Force Friday? The Pi Ball next to the Hasbro BB-8 and the Sphero BB-8, respectively. I was able to get both the Hasbro and Sphero version. The Hasbro one does give the impression it can be modded fairly easily. My first thought, could I put the drive mechanism in the “Pi Ball” project , or perhaps a new version. A mobile and wireless Raspberry Pi? (See the Pi Ball here: Pi Ball – A Spherical and Interactive Raspberry Pi 2 Case ) The Sphero one cannot be opened without cutting it in half. Which is a bad idea. It is a regular Sphero with an additional piece for the “head” of BB-8. If you have a BB-8, share it in the comments below! Cabe http://twitter.com/Cabe_Atwell
