Oklahoma Christian grads are a Force for BB-8
The ball-shaped robot featured in the film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” rolls, beeps and responds to commands through an app on mobile devices.
“The first time we saw BB-8 fully decorated with the head on, it was just this moment of ‘We’re making a Star Wars product,’” said Earwood, Sphero’s director of core technology. “We just couldn’t believe it. It was incredible.” Earwood and Carroll, Sphero’s director of product, are graduates of Oklahoma Christian University in Oklahoma City.
