As you may remember from my previous post, I am stuck with a old laptop & postings on this blog & my main site is very minimal. But I will continue to post hauls when I get the chance.
So Canada Post is going Christmas mode where they will be doing package deliveries 7 days a week. I give my praise & support for their hard work during this busy season. I missed out my first haul which was yesterday December 3. I was at work & had to pick it up on the same day surprisingly. Was thinking that I need to pick it up today. So what came first?
It’s Sphero’s R2-D2 from the Star Wars series. After getting BB-8, I decided to get this. I admit BB-8 isn’t too much fun since it’s mainly a Sphero ball with a head & I don’t do much programming. But R2-D2 is a bit more fun as it is a droid that I kind of grew up with during my childhood. The Star Wars didn’t make much sense to me as a kid though. It was mainly the robots & fights that I got me in. But like BB-8, this thing will probably get old for me. So, I get this next haul today.
Also from the Star Wars series & Sphero product line, it’s the Force Band. This came as a free gift from Best Buy. They got a promo where you buy a Star Wars droid, you get a Force Band for free. The band is $100 worth from Best Buy & R2-D2 was on sale for $170. So it’s kind of buying R2-D2 for $70. I was interested in the Force Band before, but the price threw me off.
Playing around with the Force Band, it is kind of interesting & tough. It’s got a bunch of other features, but I don’t think I will be doing those things. Mainly find stuff in an environment like AR & “shadow” fighting with lightsabers & plasma guns. Pretty much stuff that kids will probably get a kick out of. But being a guy with low interest, I will probably get bored with these things fast.
I do expect more hauls coming this month. But the time I will post about them will probably be slow. Again, lack of equipment. I could try the apps for tablets & phones, but it will be a bit hard for me since I’m one of those people that prefer physical keyboards for long typing. And I don’t know how to type.
