Now this video is kinda boring. But this is the founder of the bb-8 builders club. And he's wearing a Rolex 16710 with a coke insert. You can see the pointed crown guards if you look closely.

The others using the Sphero as a jumping off point are gonna work better but that's still pretty cool.

What's interesting is the droid is really just the top part. The sphere below is just a ball the head balances on and uses for moving around.
