This is an easy to build Disney Star Wars BB8 inspired robot. It's controlled by an Arduino UNO over a bluetooth connection from your smartphone.
Part one in our series covers the majority of the electrical assembly, and the creation of his main body.
Here us the second part available now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o28ejTRMKo0

During the creation of part two I realised I would need a hot wire cutter to cut the styrofoam in half. (The bread knife attempt made A LOT of mess and I got in trouble with the other half). Here you can find instructions on how to build your own battery powered one:
