Sphero, the company behind the remote control BB-8 you didn't get for Christmas is to release a new gadget that lets you 'force control' and puppeteer the droid.

The 'Force Band' as it is called is a wearable gadget that controls BB-8 through a series of hand movements. Palm up, the BB-8 looks away from you, palm down, BB-8 faces you, resting you hand on the side enters driving mode etc.

The band is not out until later this year and at the moment it is only in it's prototype phase. Watch this space.
