The Ball Bot

GuardBot, a Stamford, Connecticut-based company has developed a spherical, amphibious robot that calls to mind BB-8, the little ball-shaped droid, which debuts in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Capable of paddling over water at about four m.p.h. as well as rolling along the ground at 20 m.p.h., it can be made in various sizes, with diameters ranging from four inches to nine feet.
