Teeny Tiny R2-D2 Ready to Hack Open Tiny Blast Doors

by Alisha K.

MAKE is calling this the world’s smallest R2-D2, and who knows? It might be. I’m not sure whether or not there’s a movement out there dedicated to fitting a beloved ‘bot into a tiny shell, but if there is, this guy’s creation may just be the champion of all time, since this R2 makes that AA battery he’s standing next to look pretty hefty.

He moves! He glides! He staggers in robotic fashion! And if he doesn’t talk crap about you in a series of boops and beeps, why, then I’d bet that’s the plan for the next version. If it’s not, it should be. I’ve had a lot of critters and things smart off to me in my day, but I’ve never been insulted by an itsy-bitsy robot, and that alone makes me wish I had the know-how to build myself a tiny R2.

He’s actually pretty impressive on the move. Check out the video:

This R2 unit is an amazing 1/18th the size of the real R2, and was made with three of Solarbotics GM15 pager gearmotor (and, probably, a lot of spare time).
