Aiming is an action you perform to ensure that BB-8 moves in the correct direction.


When you first connect to your BB-8, place him on the ground and point the blue light at your feet.

Then, point in BB-8’s direction with your arm level to the ground, and press the Force Band button to set the aim.


Force Push to begin driving to see if he drives forward. If he doesn’t, you can press the button on the Force Band again to put BB-8 into aim mode. When the Force Band is in aim mode, the light on the band will flash blue. When you  twist your wrist, you will notice that BB-8’s blue tail light moves in relation to your wrist movement. Once the blue light points back at you, point your arm in BB-8’s direction, keeping it level to the ground, and press the Force Band button to set the aim.
