When Adam, founder of the Sphero robotics company first met with Lucasfilm, he had no idea that the spherical toy robot he and co-inventor Ian Bernstein built had anything in common with a new Star Wars character, but when he saw BB-8, he couldn't believe his fortune. That partnership has led to one of the most adorable items to hit shelves in time for Christmas this year.

We interviewed Wilson in New York, where he took BB-8 for a spin outside of Madison Square Garden. Watch the adventures of a little droid in the big city above, and keep your eye out for Sphero's BB-8 retailing in stores everywhere for $149.99.
