R2-D2 Virtual Keyboard

Posted in Star Wars by Tam Yue on May 19th, 2014

R2 D2 Virtual KeyboardYet another must have for the Star Wars collector. Virtual keyboards have been around in some form for years, but This R2-D2 virtual keyboard projector makes all others look pretty boring.

He will make you feel like you have your very own R2-D2 droid at home. He beeps when you power on/off, as you type and sounds just like the real thing. This little guy can control either your mobile device or your personal computer through a Bluetooth 3.0 connection.

The downside to this; the price. He will run you about $330 over at Run A Town. We think that is a bit of a stretch considering non-Star Wars projectors are about 1/2 of that.

R2-D2 Lunch Kit

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2011

Most adults don’t really carry lunchboxes, but as lunchboxes get cooler, you will see more of them packing a lunch since we are all geeks at heart. This R2-D2 lunch kit is pretty cool. Adults and kids alike will want to carry this one around.

It’s only $14.99 and measures 5¾” W x 5½” D x 11¼” H and even has integrated sounds and LED light effects. That beats the Lunchbox I had as a kid. The noise that this one makes will likely get your kid in trouble.

Star Wars Operation

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2011

Remember the old Operation game. The funny bone was the hardest to get and I can still hear that buzzer! Now Hasbro is launching a new edition of the popular board game, but they have switched the red-nosed guy for R2-D2.

The game can be pre-ordered now for $27, and it will ship in September. Jawas are no longer the only guys who get to operate on droids. I wonder what R2′s hardest part to remove is.

R2-D2 barbecue grill

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on May 17th, 2011

Hey even the evil Empire likes to have a barbecue now and then and when they do they do it in style. R2 has caused them quite a bit of trouble over the years and now it is payback time. The droid will be made to serve the empire by cooking up some delicious meat.

If you have a 55-gallon drum lying around and Smoker, you can create one just like this. Then give it a paint makeover. May the force and good burgers be with you.

R2-D2 iPhone case

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2011

If you didn’t already get the Droid R2-D2 edition, than all of you wannabe Luke Skywalkers out there have another option. This R2-D2 case for your iPhone. Nothing is cooler than making a phone look like a Star Wars robot after all.

This one features sculpted details and is a StarWarsShop exclusive iPhone 3G hard case. It may not pal around with C-3PO and beep and chirp at you, but it’s the next best thing to having an actual droid.

Darth Vader and R2-D2 USB hand warmers

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2010

Use either the dark side or the light side to keep your hands warm this holiday season. These star wars USB hand warmers feature a brushed aluminium case that provides a cozy temperature of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) for about four hours on a two hour USB charge.

Or you can just wear gloves. These are manufactured by Takara Tomy and are limited to Japan. They come in two designs. Darth Vader and R2-D2.

R2-D2 Talking Money Box

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2010

The R2-D2 talking money box is a great way to save up for all of that Star Wars gear you want to buy. But R2-D2 doesn’t talk, so really you are just getting a bunch of beeps and boops that you will need Luke to translate.

It’s just $34. Lucas has gotten rich off of you buying all of this R2 gear, so saving money is the least this little droid can help you to do.

Sexy Star Wars R2D2 and Vader swim suits

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on October 20th, 2010

Now that is exactly the droid I’ve been looking for. These Star Wars Swim Suits were designed by a fan from Brisbane, Australia. The R2D2 version will make your inner geek happy and have you loving the droid in a whole new way.

The Lord Vader version is called the Darkside and is basically just a mash-up of Vader and the Dark Side of the Moon art. Both are priced at $85 on Black Milk.com.

New pics of the Droid 2: R2-D2 edition

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on September 5th, 2010

You can expect to see this phone hanging out of your favorite geek’s pocket very soon. It’s the Astromech flavored Droid 2 we’ve all been waiting for. Some pics of the finished phone have shown up and sure enough it still looks like a flattened R2 unit.

This limited-edition Motorola Droid 2 is as close as you are going to get to a pocket R2-D2. This has to be the coolest looking phone ever.

iPhone gets some R2-D2 action too

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on August 18th, 2010

We wish we knew, but sadly no one is sure when the R2-D2 version of the Droid 2 is going on sale, so in the meantime keep using your 3G or 3GS iPhone for a little longer, so you can use this R2-D2 case.

It may not be as cool as the R2 version of the Droid 2, but it gets the job done for a cheaper price. You can pre-order it now for just $30. Awesome right?

First pics of the R2-D2 Droid 2 phone

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2010

There’s been a lot of talk about a special version of the Verizon Droid 2 that will look like R2-D2. The special-edition phone isn’t supposed to be shown until tomorrow’s Celebration V show, but the folks at Technabob stumbled upon this picture one day early.

Yep. The shell looks like R2 alright. Hardcore Star Wars fans will want to get on this one right away when it arrives this September. We think R2 makes for a damn fine looking phone if you ask us.

Voice Activated R2-D2

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2010

Artoo is back. This time from Hammacher as a Voice Activated R2-D2 toy for rich geeks. This motorized replica will respond to various voice commands, going through your halls and rooms as if easily as he traverses Tatooine.

He can obey over 40 voice commands. Stuff like “Turn around!,” “Move forward two units!” etc. Which makes your droid seem like a lame version of R2, but it’s the best we can do right now. He also has games like tag, relying on his built-in infrared sensor to search for you.

Amazing R2-D2 Lunch Box

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on June 17th, 2010

Too bad they didn’t have this lunch box when I was a kid. It is of course, our favorite droid R2-D2. Not only does it look like R2, but it’s shaped like him as well.

Sadly this one doesn’t exist just yet. At the moment, it’s just a design. Hopefully they bring this into the real world soon. I would use it even today as an adult. It’s just plain awesome. Any droid that holds snacks is good with me.

Astronomical Observatory turned into a giant R2-D2

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on June 4th, 2010

Pranks are fun as long as no one gets hurt. When you can put a geeky twist on a prank, it can be gold. That’s what we have here. Pure nerd gold. See that giant R2-D2? It used to be an observatory.

Well, until students at Minnesota’s Carleton College turned the campus astronomical observatory into a giant R2-D2. Man, I hope the Empire can’t see that from space. They might come looking for the Death Star plans.
