    I can't watch online video, so those clips may say the same thing - apparently BB-8 was not a CGI creation. The droid was a real puppet-controlled gyroscopic robot which was on-set and the puppeteer later digitally erased (similar to the Episode I version of C-3PO).

    This is from the Australian PC & Tech Authority website ...

    And this was in Friday's issue of The New Zealand Herald newspaper and website ...

    He's real and he's spectacular! :) He came out on stage at Celebration and was really neat to look at.
