R2-D2 was a very versatile droid, but throughout all the Star Wars saga, I don’t ever remember seeing him cooking. Even though the little droid has his own BBQ meat smoker, soy sauce dispenser and pepper mill, he’s still never in the kitchen.
If the mobile phone or smartphone you have right now really sucks and you want a new device, AmazonWireless has a killer deal you need to check out. The smartphone is the Motorola Droid Bionic, which is one of the latest offerings from Motorola.
There are a few awesome things about this product. First of all is Geek Stuff 4 U’s insistence that this is a “soy sauce dispenser.” I’m not sure what will happen should you have the gall to fill it with something else, say honey or machine oil, but I wouldn’t mess with an astromech droid if I were you.
Do you think the Star Wars franchise will ever run out of product licensing ideas? I sure don’t. The latest in a long, long line of official Star Wars merch is this version of the board game Operation, and the patient in need of medical help this time isn’t that chubby naked dude with the light-up red nose – instead it’s R2-D2.
This must be the best R2-D2 sweater I’ve ever seen. (Or is it the only R2-D2 sweater I’ve ever seen?) It also helps that it’s handcrafted to your personal measurements and requirements, to ensure that it fits perfectly.
Frequent readers of Technabob know that we love LEGO and we love Star Wars, so when the two universes collide, magic often happens. While this LEGO R2-D2 might not be as big as this version, it has one thing the giant LEGO version doesn’t – it can actually move around.
There’s been some buzz floating around the web about a special version of the Verizon Droid 2, decked out to look like the little R2 unit that inspired its name. The special-edition phone isn’t supposed to be shown until the start of tomorrow’s Celebration V show, but I stumbled onto this picture one day early, snapped by the folks at R2-D2 Central.
From the looks of things, R2-D2 is looking awfully flat and boxy in his new smartphone home.
I’m not sure why this R2-D2 has 8 video game consoles built into its innards, but I still like it. Maybe it’s just the very fact that I’ve never seen an R2 unit with more than 20 game controllers connected to its front, or maybe it’s just the sheer absurdity of the thing that has me captivated.
I mean look at the damned things. They’re almost as large as those Coleman containers that was all the rage when I was in high school. The droids shake their heads and emit bleeps and bloops, but damn they’re huge.
And this, I believe, is the palette swap = $$$ formula at work:
The droids are also quite detailed, so I’m thinking these are collectibles with some functionality.
Is that a lightsaber unit in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? That’s the question your friends will be asking when you whip out this tiny little motorized R2-D2 and he starts tooling around your desk between your coffee mug and your iPod dock.
The miniature R2-D2 doesn’t just sit there.
Next time you happen to crash land on the sandy surface of Tatooine with nothing but you, your shiny metal sidekick and a bunch of Jawas to carry your rusty carcass around, why not first quench your desert thirst with one of these?
I’ve never seen these R2D2 water bottles before today, but I want one for the next time I leave the comfort of my climate-controlled basement to go outside to get some fresh air and exercise.
I was surfing around in search of this desktop R2-D2 mini USB can fridge that I recently read about, when I happened upon something much, much cooler than that cooler.
Turns out that this awesome R2-D2 compact refrigerator was apparently made back in 2002 as a promotional prize for an Attack of the Clones contest held at 7-11 Stores in Japan.
