In the past few months, we have covered plenty of cool Star Wars robots. This one is a life-size BB-8 with a hamster drive system by Kevin Gorby. The parts were from ServoCity and VEX Robotics. 20lbs worth of weight was used to keep the center of gravity low.
These videos give you a better idea how you can build your own BB-8 robot. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
