Although it looks cute as heck, this project build from Make is not for the faint of heart.
After seeing the first trailer for Star Wars Episode VII, I knew what my next robotics project had to be. I wanted to build a working, full-size BB-8.
I started by figuring out how I thought BB-8 would work and I decided that I would make two robots. One robot would rest on the top of the ball and its job is just to stay on the top and not fall off. A second robot would be inside the ball moving around and rolling the ball.
