R2-D2 Gets Powered by Steam

 |  |  |  |  |  |  April 9, 2007


I’ve seen some crazy robots in my time, but this one could take the cake. It’s a replica of everyone’s favorite trashcan robot, R2-D2, running on steam power.

R2-S2 Steam Powered Robot

The R2-S2 robot uses compressed steam to drive the bot around, spewing jets of water vapor into the air as it goes for a ride.

The master craftsmen over at CrabFu Steamworks took an old Cheddar steam boiler and made it into the heart and soul of the little guy. Once the steam pressure builds up to around 20psi, R2 can chug along at a snail’s pace for a short distance.
