Oh wow. So, the OVO x Air Jordan 10 Retro was recently released at an OVO pop-up store in Los Angeles. The shoe is featured in both white and black iterations of the classic Jordan silhouette. Drizzy Drake has been keeping it brief as he just released a track called ‘My Side’ recently. Everyone has wanted an opportunity to cop these special edition OVO x Air Jordan 10 Retros featuring stingray leather on the upper with mudguard scotch grain leather panelling within the tongue and outsole.What makes the shoe so eye-catching is the subtle gold detailing with Drake’s OVO signature among the insole with Jordan’s infamous jumpman logo on the heel. We have no idea if the shoe will ever be released again at another OVO pop-up shop. Shoutout to the people who was able to cop a pair silently from LA. Check out images of the OVO x Air Jordan 10 Retro below and stay tuned for more info regarding the shoe’s official release.

“Scott Eastwood is not playing Steve Trevor… basically, [he] had a choice: he could have a role in Suicide Squad – a smaller role – or he could test for the male lead in Wonder Woman alongside guys like Alexander Skarsgård and Liam Hemsworth. And he chose the Suicide Squad role. So we don’t know what that role is. I’m told that he’s signed on for three pictures, but it’s not clear if Wonder Woman is actually one of them. Warner Bros. thinks he’s going to be a big star, he’s obviously the son of Clint Eastwood who has made them a lot of money… it seems like the role of Steve Trevor is still open, and they are not going back to those guys for testing now that they have a new director.”
The news falls in line with a report from earlier today, which revealed that Warner Bros. is now seeking actors for the Steve Trevor role in Wonder Woman, but this is the first we’re hearing about Alexander Skarsgård and Liam Hemsworth testing. It isn’t known who Scott Eastwood is playing, but he has signed on for three DC movies as well. Of course, Gal Gadot is set to star as Wonder Woman, after her character will be introduced in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Who do you think would be a good fit for Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman? Let us know below.
Star Wars Celebration kicked off yesterday with the first panel, where several actors from Star Wars: The Force Awakens appeared on stage, and fans finally got to see the first full-length trailer. Perhaps the most memorable moment of the whole panel, though, was the reveal that lovable ball droid BB-8 is an actual, practical robot. When BB-8 was introduced in the first teaser trailer last year, many fans thought and/or assumed that the droid was a digital creation, since it is literally a rolling ball with a head somehow attached. But many fans looked on in wonder as BB-8 literally rolled out onto the stage. How is this possible? Forbes reveals the company that developed the technology behind BB-8 is called Sphero, a Boulder, Colorado start-up company.
Producer Kathleen Kennedy teased during the panel that Disney CEO Bob Iger discovered the company himself. The company describes itself as a, “connected play company, fusing digital and physical play by creating toys and robots that you control with a smart device.” The startup company, lead by CEO Paul Berberian, was actually selected for Disney’s Accelerator program, one of nine companies selected by Disney, who gives each company up to $120,000 in investment capital. As it turns out, the program matches each company with a mentor inside Disney, and Sphero’s mentor was Bob Iger himself. After seeing their main product, also called Sphero, a rolling ball that is controlled by an app, Bob Iger connected the company with the filmmakers.
As for how BB-8’s head manages to stay on top of a rolling ball, Popular Mechanics theorizes that magnets are used both inside the ball and at the bottom of the head, and while that has yet to be confirmed, it seems to be the only logical explanation. We have a graphic from Sphero below, that explains the mechanics inside the Sphero ball, along with a marketing video for the company itself, where you can see how their much-smaller Sphero balls really work. There is also a 2008 comic from XKCD that proposes how this technology would really work. In addition, Forbes mentions that Sphero “appears to be working with Disney on a Star Wars-themed toy,” which may mean that fans around the world can own their very own BB-8. What do you think abou these new developments? Take a look at the images and videos below, along with the video of BB-8’s appearance at yesterday’s panel, and stay tuned for more on BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
