R2-D2 Turntable Perfect for R2-DJ2 or C-3PDisco
April 14th, 2012
Got an old turntable lying around? Why not geek it up and give it a new look like these guys did with their awesome R2-D2 inspired turntable mod.
I don’t know why, but I always pictured C-3PO working in a disco, spinning records, and I think this would have been his turntable of choice. R2′s technical components were done by Tex Nasty from Remix Turntable Lab and the paint and art was done by Ed Hubbs of Full Blown Kustoms using a classic Technics 1200 turntable as a starting point. Here it is in action, doing what droids do best – playing flat vinyl discs.
I love how the spinning metal platter looks like R2′s turning head when it rotates. Too bad you can’t see it when there’s a record on there. Guess you need to dig up some of those rare see-through records for the full-on droid effect.
