With Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens just four months away, the release of related merchandise has begun to unfold with numerous toys, clothes, and video games such as Star Wars Battlefront and Disney Infinity Version 3.0 being at the forefront.
One of the coolest bits of The Force Awakens merch to come out is the official BB-8 Droid from Sphero which manages to bring the franchise’s new droid to life through the use of the app-controlled Sphero technology. The Sphero BB-8 Droid requires the new Sphero app which is currently only on Android and iOS devices. The Sphero BB-8 Droid will not work with the current Sphero Windows Phone app unfortunately but the official Sphero Twitter account has confirmed to several users that a new Windows Phone app is in development though they have no specific timeline set for its release.
@TheJackSack We are working on a Windows phone App. Timeline TBD.
