Assuming the mantle of the Sith, Japanese toy maker imp. recently unveiled an R2-Q5 version of its R2-D2 virtual keyboard. Except for its colors and its limited run of 500 units, it works exactly the same as Artoo – it’s a Bluetooth 3.0 infrared keyboard that makes astromech sounds when it’s turned on and off as well as while you’re typing.

He really does look cooler than Artoo. But that black and gold look is going to cost you.

If you’re ready to give in to the Dark Side, order the R2-Q5 virtual keyboard from Amazon Japan for ¥33,480 (~$280 USD).
