R2D2 is so 1977. BB-8 is the droid you’re looking for. Brookstone restocked its shelves recently with this popular robotic toy after selling out. It’s no wonder why. You can control this cool robot with your smartphone or tablet. BB-8 listens and responds to your voice commands, and even lets you record and view holographic videos.
