Orbotix has just released the official app for BB-8 for Windows 10 devices. The company released the app on Android and iOS a little while ago – however, it’s now available for Windows 10 users. For those wondering – yes, it’s a Universal Windows App meaning it runs on Windows 10 PCs, as well as Mobile devices. With the app, you will be able to drive your BB-8 – here’s a video showing the BB-8 in action:

Here are some of the features of the app:

  • Drive – Slide your finger on the driving pad to guide your Droid. BB-8 will go wherever you point and hold, and he’ll even react to collisions. If you want to see more of his personality, enter the droid commander, choose an icon, and BB-8 will show off a range of expressions.
  • Patrol – Tap into Patrol to send BB-8 off on his own. His autonomous behavior allows him to move around, get familiar with your space, and investigate the surroundings. Tap the play button to get BB-8 on the move.
  • Holographic Messaging -No Droid is complete without holographic messaging. Now you can make your own thanks to BB-8. Record a video and BB-8 will transform it into a virtual hologram.
