When Sphero released its BB-8 robotic ball, co-founder and chief scientist Adam Wilson knew that he was onto something. He and his team had partnered with Lucasfilm to create the wirelessly connected replica model of the new droid in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the demand for it far exceeded their expectations. As Wilson and his team moved forward, they tried to come up with ways to make the toy more enjoyable; one of those ideas was to release a smartband peripheral called the Force Band. Using one of the newest versions of Bluetooth technology, the band relies on motion gesturing from the wearer to control the mini-BB-8 droid. It looks like something out of a Star Wars film, an aspect the design team worked hard on nailing, and doesn't feel heavy on your wrist. For Wilson, the main reason he decided to pursue a peripheral controlling device that both enthusiasts, fans and kids could wear was to ensure they didn't need to rely on using an iPhone or Android … [Read more...] about Star Wars Force Band will control both ‘Battle Worn’ BB-8, Force Awakens model

And what makes them so popular, anyway?It's all a matter of timing.Reanimating a dead universeIt's hard to imagine these days, when every year brings a new Star Wars movie and a truckload of spin-off media, but in the early '90s Star Wars was effectively dead.

Outside of Jar Jar Binks and ewoks, there’s no creature in the Star Wars universe more divisive than porgs. [Warning: The following contains minor spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.] Introduced in The Last Jedi, porgs are “small, flat-muzzled avians that flock about the rocks and roost in the cliffs of Luke Skywalker’s secluded island” of Ahch-To, according to the official Star Wars website. They make high-pitched, squeal-like noises to communicate and sport sad, pathetic looks on their faces. They’re small, feathery creatures that, depending on the type of person you are, are either perceived as adorable or loathsome. Even The Last Jedi cast members themselves are divided on the issue. John Boyega, who plays Finn in the movie, told Jimmy Kimmel that he hates porgs, adding that the small birds give him the creeps. Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, doesn’t have a problem with them. Of all the actors, however, it’s the master of … [Read more...] about Porgpinions: Are Star Wars’ newest creatures delightful or distracting?
