BB-8 Sphero Droid


A quick one day project, I wanted to build my own functioning Star Wars droid. Using a Sphero, polyurethane foam, magnets and spray paint, I made this little guy.

Check out my step-by-step instructions and go make one for yourself!



The head was CNC milled out of foam and surfaced with spackle. I laser cut shapes to mask off the markings found on the droid in the movie.

Once completed, the robot could be controlled via bluetooth with any iPhone.
