With Star Wars: The Force Awakens set to hit big screen in December, you can expect Disney to sell a whole lot of toys for the holiday season. And while there’s a ton to choose from already, the new BB8-Droid is sure to be among the most coveted.

Developed by the Colorado-based team at Sphero, this droid is packed full of character and plenty of technology as well. The Bluetooth gadget features a 60-minute battery life, and uses inductive charging to refuel. It’s controlled through an app on your mobile device, and boasts an impressive 30 meter range. Using gyroscopic propulsion, the tiny robot can roll and balance all by itself, and does a stellar job mimicking the BB8 droid from the movie trailer. At $150, it’s on the more expensive end for toys, but the video below certainly has us sold. This could be one of the coolest Star Wars toys ever created. [Purchase]
