Late Late Show band leader Reggie Watts met up with The Force Awakens’ rollerdroid BB-8, and the duo turned in a little droid funk track for our enjoyment. Funny thing is, we totally believe that Watts can understand exactly what BB is saying.
Angelo Casimiro wanted a replica of The Force Awakens’ rotund droid, but Sphero’s version wasnt’t big enough. Instead, he spent his Xmas break building his own full-size droid for just $120, with a paper-mâché beach ball body and an Arduino brain. More on Instructables.
While the sound effects are all wrong, we got a good chuckle from Reid Southen’s doctoring of this scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, replacing the giant boulder with another round, rolly object. Also, he made this a year ago, so he had no idea what BB-8 sounded like yet.
