If by some force of The Force you've avoided spoilers for what Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is about, well you might want to avoid this latest peek.

Sphero's Force Band, a gesture-based wearable remote that made you feel like an actual Jedi while you controlled its wildly popular BB-8 toy, is now further increasing your "mastery" of The Force with the addition of IFTTT support letting you control other things in your home, including your smartphone, using simple arm motions.
The Star Wars Force Band is a cute little gadget. It's fun for controlling your BB-8 robot by waving your arm around, even if it does make it run into walls a little more than we'd like. Today, Sphero has switched on IFTTT support for the Force Band, so you can use it to switch on your lights or play The Imperial March on your stereo.
