Vowing to carve a more creative jack-o’-lantern next year? A YouTube user and robotics expert Randy Slavey demonstrates a remote-controlled pumpkin that looks and moves like BB-8, the newest droid in the Star Wars universe. The character will appear in the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens (out Dec. 14) and is already tipped to be a popular holiday toy.
The figure from Star Wars seemed to have been a popular design for pumpkins this year, for in the walk-up to Halloween, Disney released a tutorial on how to paint a pumpkin to look like the white-and-orange droid.
