Sphero Spider-Man Will Be The Wisecracking Friend You Never Had

For anyone who bought the Sphero BB-8 (raise your hand, you know you did), I’m sure you’re familiar with what their products can do. Now they’ve teamed up with Marvel to make a Spider-Man one. Only Spidey doesn’t roll around and get stuck behind your couch — he sits on your table and makes fun of you!

Smartass remarks aside, this thing looks pretty fun. It has built-in eyes so that it it can show emotion, and sensors pick up movement in the room it is placed in. Through the app, you can fight villains, update the app with new phrases and jokes, and when you aren’t doing that, you can just sit and have a conversation with him. About, like, the weather and stuff.

While released around Spider-Man: Homecoming, sadly he is not voiced by Tom Holland. Here are the full specs:

  • Wise-crackin’ Spidey – Talk to Spidey using a variety of phrases. But be warned – he’s quite the jokester!
  • Super Smarts – Earn Spider-Man’s trust by working together to defeat baddies.
  • Team Up – Go on missions & battle villains. Every decision influences the adventure.
  • Emotive Eyes – Spidey’s LCD eyes express his every thought and emotion.
  • Spider-Sense – Spidey’s built-in IR sensor allows him to detect and react to movement.
  • Ultimate Experience – Spidey’s web connection allows you to get content updates.
  • Create an alter ego – Create your Super Hero identity and keep tabs on your accomplishments.
  • Write your story – Every decision creates a new path forward, making every adventure unique.
