BB-8 Made from EVA Foam with Servos

Building a working droid isn’t easy work, but it turns out making one from foam isn’t a simple task either. Jamie Young made a replica of BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens using EVA foam, and though the little guy doesn’t roll around, he’s quite adorable and has a few moving features! Young has found EVA foam to be his go-to material; he’s used it to make an Iron Man bust, a life-size R2-D2, and this BB-8. He applied knowledge and skills he learned from making Artoo to this project. Young upgraded BB-8 by installing a servo motor so BB-8 can spin his head and so he can perform his thumbs-up move from the film.
