Sphero Adds R2-Q5 Imperial Droid to Spy on the Other Sphero Star Wars Droids

· · Cool Stuff Found

Sphero RA2-Q5 from Star Wars

Don’t look now, driods, but Sphero has a new model come to spy on your. It’s R2-Q5, an imperial droid in the service of Emperor Palpatine, and it’s enough to send you scurrying for an oil bath! Part of Sphero’s amazing app-enabled droid product line, R2-Q5 is the 4th droid to be unleashed, and he serves as a sort of mirror to the company’s amazing R2-D2. The company said it features emotive waddles, a rotating dome, and bipod or tripod stances. As with the other models, you control R2-Q5 through your iPhone (or Android, if that’s your thing). While different from the R2 models, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my BB-8 unit from Sphero, and I think these R2 units are just amazeballs. It’s $199.99, and initially available through Best Buy.

LEGO and Star Wars are a pretty awesome combination, and one of their newest games takes that to a wonderfully fun new level with a virtual reality experience. The game is called The Last Jedi 3D Experience and it lets you build ships the Resistance and First Order use in their battle for control of the galaxy. The game plays in a web browser so you don’t need to install any special apps, and if you have Google Cardboard or View-Master VR for your iPhone it’s over-the-top cool. The Last Jedi 3D Experience is free and you can check out the game at the LEGO website.

Man, kids today get all the cool toys! Check out the Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder by Radio Flyer. I mean, it looks like Luke’s landspeeder, and it actually goes. It GOES! It’s an electric car, for goodness’s sake! For kids! The gear shift switches between 2mph forward, 5mph forward, or 2mph reverse, and it holds one or two kids with a combined max weight of 130 lbs. The company described the dashboard as “interactive,” too. How fun! Oh, and pricey for a kid’s toy. It’s $499.99, and available in the U.S. More countries are coming.

LEGO and Star Wars go together like, well, LEGO and Star Wars. So of course we’re seeing plenty of LEGO recreations of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser trailer. My favorite so far comes from Workshop LEGO Animations, and it’s shot-for-shot spot on. Rolling LEGO oceans, LEGO Millennium Falcon and TIE Fighters, Rey, Finn, and Poe. I love it so much I want Disney to make all the Star Wars trailers with LEGO.
