Making BB8

BB8, the new Astromech Droid from Star Wars, The Force Awakens was a popular character from the second the droid appeared in a teaser trailer.  That popularity has only grown since and it’s inevitable that clever people would want to make their own.  Here’s a bunch of stuff on people making BB8.
