Star Wars toys have always had one major problem: they never quite live up to what you see on the screen. Until now. The Sphero BB-8 Droid uses gyroscopic propulsion and a magnetically-attached head to mimic the movements of the pre-release star of The Force Awakens, just like the full-scale model the company made for Disney presentations. It's controlled by an app that lets you manually control the toy, create routes it will patrol automatically, and send "holographic" messages, and charges wirelessly, so there's never any cords to ruin the illusion.
