Awaken the force within you by adding your own adorable BB-8 by your side!
A tutorial video of a 17-year-old Pinoy building a D.I.Y. replica of the BB-8 droid has been making the rounds on social media since it was first uploaded on Thursday (January 21, 2016).
The life-sized and fully functional droid, very much similar to the one in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, “was made from household items and some Arduino circuitry. No 3D Printers! No CNCs! No Mills!,” as explained by Angelo Casimiro in the video caption.
What makes it more handy? It can be controlled with your mobile phone!
Casimiro, dubbed as a “Pinoy Tinkerer” from the De La Salle University, is also set to release a second version of his work…this time with better specifications through his TechBuilder YouTube channel soon.
