Nice! Now that's what we should be doing Grin I'd like to have a real B-8 and not that sphero let-down. Thanks for sharing!

my pleasure.

That is *sweet*. Q: is all the "action" on Instragram and YouTube, or will there be a site with a discussion board, etc.?

@DJSures: aw, c'mon DJ. The Sphero isn't *that* bad. It's a cute toy, and it keeps the cats on their toes.

You need to become a BB-8 Builders Club member(FREE) and then once approved you get a pdf with the links to d/l all the parts and the instructions etc.

How do you join? It brings me to the Facebook page when I click the logo. I wonder if they have a completed b8 that works yet? Seems their videos only have a dome printed.

Im going to start mine once my XLR-ONE Mini orders are done. With 3 printers going i figure a week would do it. Im ordering the Clear Dome so i have it plus the other odds and ends. I have my V4 ready for this guy. Will be cool to have it interact with the XLR-ONES's.

Would BB-8 need the Inverted Pendulum in the EZ Shop to keep the head oriented? The other way is to just use weights on the bottom like the toys do I suppose.
