Star Wars Ball Droid: How is the head attached to the body?

Just watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens, here is my review on it. Overall a good movie, enjoyed watching it. The storyline and lightsaber duels are a bit weak in my opinion. How Rey, an untrained person holding a lightsaber for the first time, managed to defeat Kylo Ren with his crossguard lightsaber remains a mystery to me. My favorite episode remains Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

Many mysteries remain unanswered, like the identities of Rey and Snoke. Looking forward to the next episode.

Something I find very interesting is the Ball Droid BB-8. Something even more interesting about the droid is that it is not CGI effects, it is a real prop. How the head of BB-8 is being attached to the body seems to be via strong magnets.

The toy-version of BB-8 is being sold on Amazon, a possible gift idea for those who are Star Wars fans. Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droid
