Finally got this up and running for my son.  I was sorely disappointed to find that he couldn't get the ap for his Kindle.   >:(  We have a shared I-pad for the family that he is using instead, but would be far more convenient to have on his own device.

You're in luck. They are making a wearable controller.

That looks awesome.  This is a must have.

One of the best kind of toys from The Force Awakens indeed.

New feature added today.  You can now watch the movie with your BB-8.  There are pop-ups on the pohone identifying characters when they come on screen, BB-8 will act surprised during action sequences and look away when something scares him.

My 5 year old thought it was pretty cool.  I agree with him!  :D
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

So you have to be watching the movie on your phone/tablet?

No.  I think the phone or tablet picks up the sound of the movie and BB-8 reacts.  You just have to have the app on and BB-8 on his charger.

Finally caved on this thing for $95 yesterday during Amazon Prime Day. Should be here tomorrow. I have a little bit of buyer's remorse, but I'm sure I'll wind up loving it.
