BB-8, node bots and the world of connected robots

I was fortunate enough to get a BB-8 for father's day. My wife and four kids really know me well. It's a blast to play. The native app allows for full control as well as some other fun things like recording messages and playing them back as a "hologram". There is a guard mode but it really isn't too smart, it just randomly goes around without any real sense of anything.
