BB-8 from the new ‘Star Wars’ movie reimagined as an Apple product
Apparently they have Apple Stores in a galaxy far, far away.
The fast-moving BB-8 droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is already a fan favorite, and now it’s getting an extreme makeover thanks to the 3D-modeling prowess of Martin Hajek. The result is a robot that is sleek, smooth, and decidedly Apple.
Using an extremely detailed 3D model of BB-8, Hajek added all kinds of details, both subtle and dramatic, to turn the droid into something you might see revealed on stage in California by Tim Cook and company.
Nicknamed the iBB-A, the Hajek’s of the rolling robot features a trio of finishes, a glowing Apple logo, and even a touchscreen embedded in its adorable dome.
To be fair, the rounded edges, metallic finish, and floating head already seemed a bit like something designed by Jony Ive. Now we have further proof that Apple would be perfectly at home in the Star Wars universe. Check out Hajek’s work below and see even more renders on his website.
