Los apasionados de los drones han demostrado en muchas ocasiones que estas pequeñas naves voladoras a control remoto sirven para mucho más que tomar fotos desde el aire. Con un poco de creatividad, talento y mucho fanatismo se pueden recrear las épicas batallas de cazas de Star Wars y grabar un vídeo que parece salido…
Garden gnomes were never exactly a trendy addition to any home, but if you must fill your garden with tiny ceramic characters, at least go with this 17-inch-tall R2-D2 statue instead of a bunch of creepy trolls.
Who knew that a rolling, beeping garbage can would one day be one of the greatest marketing tools man has ever known? There are more products based on R2-D2 that galaxies far, far away, and now that he’s an oven mitt, the plucky little droid can help you get out of yet another hot mess.
As the weather gets nicer, it’s time to finally pause The Force Awakens and head outside for some fresh air and sunshine. That doesn’t mean you have to abandon Star Wars altogether. Not when ThinkGeek’s just revealed a wonderful kite collection full of X-Wings, Death Stars, and Droids.
Could a relationship between an astromech droid and an anthropomorphised articulated desk lamp ever really work? Debatable. But it’s worth a shot, because if it did, their offspring would be this fantastic R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp that ThinkGeek is now selling for $60.
I have to start off with an apology: I was wrong. Wrong in the worst possible way, too: I misidentified a tiny image of a droid in a Star Wars movie. I hope I don’t have to offer my resignation, but I do understand. I would like, however, a chance to fix things. I have a theory, you see. About a droid.
iRobot’s Roomba vacuum cleaners are about the closest thing you can get to having a real Star Wars droid at home. In fact, many Roomba owners are happy to pretend their robovac is just a shorter version of R2-D2 while it works away, and this decal set will help make that even more believable.
One of the most iconic non-human characters in movie history, R2-D2, was the handiwork of many people. Beloved concept artist Ralph McQuarrie designed him, Kenny Baker helped bring him to life—but it was Tony Dyson, who passed away today at the age of 68, who had the daunting task of building Artoo as a real life…
Sure, you can probably do a good R2-D2 impression without building yourself a fancy helmet, with just a few whistles and clicks. But what if you could have a helmet that “translated” your own voice into Droidspeak, and what if the helmet also “translated” Droidspeak back into English?
If you lack the patience for assembling something as simple as a jigsaw puzzle, you’ll want to move along. Metal Earth’s intricate models, which assemble from flat, pre-cut sheets of metal, could frustrate even a brain surgeon. Which is unfortunate, because these new color models are so very tempting.
Does the shape of a Rubik’s Cube affect how hard it is to solve? At first glance you’d assume the irregularly-shaped pieces of this R2-D2 rotating puzzle would make it easy to put back together, but before you know it, you could have a real mess of droid parts on your hands.
The Empire is apparently alive and well. Today, a pair of Storm Troopers and R2D2 accompanied White House spokesman Josh Earnest on stage at the White House Press Briefing Room.
Ever since Star Wars first hit theaters back in 1977, fans have been asking themselves: “when are we going to get a remote control R2-D2 mini fridge with a built-in hi-def video projector?” The answer to that question, it turns out, is at the Consumer Electronics Show next month in Vegas.
He helped the Rebels defeat an evil empire, but little did R2-D2 know his glory years were behind him, and ahead lay a lifetime of menial chores including gobbling up your laundry so that it doesn’t end up as a dirty pile on the floor.
There’s a little droid that’s appeared in Star Wars in the last couple of years, R2-KT. She’s an astromech with a special purpose: memorializing a little girl who passed away in 2005. Now, it looks like she’ll appear in bigger things.
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.
I can’t imagine anything cuter than R2-D2 trying to seduce someone—or in this case, something: A blue mailbox. He brings her flowers, performs the sweetest mating dance, watches movies with her, or even zaps away people who try to mail things.
If he can repair an intergalactic spaceship while it’s blasting through the cosmos, it only makes sense that turning water into steam would be child’s play for the world’s most multi-talented astromech droid.
