Did you feel like you wanted your own droid after watching the latest Star Wars film? Or perhaps, the idea of having a pet robot intrigues you. Well we have some excellent news for our beloved Carsome readers as we kick-off the New Year with a blast. Beginning January 1st 2016, we will be giving away 2 of the droids that you've been looking for, the exact one that went viral not too long ago. If you're still wondering what it is, it's the BB-8 App-enabled Droid by Sphero.
For those of you who aren't aware, BB-8 is an astromech droid that appeared in the latest chapter in the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This adorable little droid ventured with the protagonists from Jakku all the way to the Starkiller Base, and it's clear that the fans love him…or her, we're not too sure if genders work the same way with robots.
The BB-8 App-enabled Droid by Sphero essentially allows you to have your very own BB-8 droid, which you can control via an app on your smartphone. This BB-8 has a mind of his own, along with attitude and actions that will continually evolve as you interact with it. It is so clever that it's not only able to recognize your voice, it will also react to it.
Sounds like a dream come true, doesn't it? But that's not all. Here's a list of prizes that you can win from this giveaway:
- BB-8™ by Sphero for a Carsome buyer (from Buy New Cars)
- BB-8™ by Sphero for a Carsome seller (from Sell Your Car)
All participants will receive:
- RM 30 petrol gift card
- Carsome merchandise
- A car coating discount voucher
