The droid you're looking for has arrived. He's the Sphero Star Wars R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid, and he's ready to play and interact with you like never before.

Got this droid for Christmas as I've been wanting one for quite some time. The first thing that surprised was the size. I never saw an ad nor the physical thing in person so based on the images I've seen online, I assume it was life-size, but that still did not disappoint me.
What really had disappointed me was the lack of features! On the box, in which the features were over exaggerated, it tells you all the cool stuff you can do, I only found one or two interesting.
Let's start out with the features I liked. I enjoyed having the ability to drive Artoo along with the actions you can make him do, it crept the hell out of my dogs. You could also put him auto-drive mode, though he's not able to do much, it is pretty sick.
Other than that, there were no other appealing features. When the box said it could do holographic simulations, it's actually AR. The experience was not that great as you see things through the eyes of Artoo, a blue vision. Plus, the experience was not very responsive.
Apparently, you can also watch movies with it. It was confusing how to set it up. When you choose the movie you want to watch, it takes a while to load so I didn't really know what happened afterwards. I assume you need to own the movie through the device your using such as iTunes or Google Play.
Another thing that really sucked was the fact it was a dirt/ dog-hair magnet. I have two dogs running around in my house and the wheels of Artoo had picked up so much of their hair eventually getting stuck in between the wheels. This ruined the performance of Artoo making him slower and less responsive. As much as I tried, I was not successful with removing the dirt and dog hair out of the wheels.
Overall, Artoo is a great toy if you're looking for something to control. However, I feel like its price does not live up to its features because, in reality, you'll likely only use the driving one.
Definitely the droid I was looking for. Lot's of features to make-believe the droid has personality.
Buyer beware. This same unit, as also true with the other Star Wars toys, are always much cheaper than the regular price listed here at Brookstone stores.
This is a great droid a miniature of the real droid. The sounds coming right from the droid and not the app is a new and cool thing. He moves really well on the tracks but wondering and hoping they last a long time. Overall a great addition to the family of droids and here's hoping they make a C3PO.
Fast charging. Easy to operate. Very "lifelike." Looks good just sitting on my desk. When powered up and your not doing anything it moves and makes noises which gives it the feeling it is truly a little R2D2.
I took off 1 star because of the following:
I'm not sure how long the tracks will last. They seem pretty thin.
The internal battery is not easily replaced.
Overall this is the best Sphero droid yet although I am biased as R2D2 is my favourite character in the Star Wars Universe. Its the only character that has "lived" through it all without having it's memory wiped.
