Lucasfilm and Disney have approved the ultimate loyalty test for Star Wars fans. Aqua, better known for its obscenely over-priced R2-D2 mini fridge, now also has a Vader fridge that’s a perfect life-size replica of Darth’s helmet. That’s the good news. The bad news? It can only chill a single can.
Did you hear that? That’s the sound of thousands of disappointed Star Wars fans who just realized that a life-size remote control R2-D2 refrigerator that can deliver them drinks will never be theirs. Unless they can find a way to justify spending $8,000+ on a tiny fridge that can only chill six cans.
Every summer, the population of algae in the North Atlantic reaches a peak, with the blue-green color of the phytoplankton causing the ocean to visibly change, even from space.
Jabba the Hutt realized that R2-D2 was better suited to serving drinks on his sail barge than being a sassy sidekick to C-3PO, and apparently Haier Asia’s AQUA brand agrees because come 2016 you’ll actually be able to buy this rechargeable remote control R2-D2 mini fridge that comes to you.

The liquid display is driven by an Arduino processor, and the events are triggered by a water keyboard. Sounds crazy, but in action it looks very…
Fohenz's new 2.1-channel PC speakers are called Aqua. For $27 (Korea only, which is a shame) you get a 3.5-inch woofer, 2-inch drive unit, mic and headset inputs, and they support 6W output power. And they've got a nice neon light that looks all '80s porno to me. With a name like Aqua, though, I think they should…
Rumormongers are telling us that the OS X interface, now known by that pet name of "Aqua," is apparently not going to be shiny enough for Apple to compete against Microsoft Vista's Aero, so now Jobs & Company have gone and changed the name of the Mac OS X user interface to Illuminous.
Do you have a communication problem? Do others say you just aren't listening? Chances are you're either a jerk, or you're underwater. If it's the latter, you can use the Aqua FM TX Pro so people on land can talk to you just fine. The active mouthpiece works when bit down on, transferring sound through your teeth and…
