We're going to bet you said the exact same thing as we did when you first saw BB-8™ in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens previews. 1) How the heck are they doing that? 2) Where can I get me one of those? Turns out, the answer to number two was always right here. Awww.
This is the Droid™ you're looking for. This 4.5" tall Droid is your app-enabled companion to the world of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You can use your phone to guide BB-8 using your Bluetooth®-enabled device, make it respond to your voice commands, have it send virtual holographic videos, or let it run on its own. Better yet, BB-8 has an adaptive personality, which means it learns as you interact with it. What more could you want from a Droid?
