Got R2 home safely from Maker Faire.
He was a big hit with the kids as always – and his new gizmos and songs were really popular.
I had a small malfuction with the smoke effect which resulted in a small electrical fire which I caught very quickly and saved from being a giant problem. I had him running again in a couple of hours.
I also saw a new chip from Arduino/Bosch that contains all of the sensors and software to run a balancing robot – so that might be something that will help with BB-8
