    This is a short video of what a group of Japanese robot-loving scientists are calling the first android newscasters. Me? I'm calling them public enemies numbers 1 and 2. *pins their pictures to the wall with big red circles around their faces* Can somebody bring me some yar... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie reader Doug's home-built Guitar2-D2 electric guitar. He said at first he wasn't gonna send it to me because he felt like that would be too narcissistic of him. Then I think he chugged a couple beers and warmed up a little. I've avoided spreading this link ... / Continue →

    Seen here talking shit on an R5-D4 droid thanks to my sick Microsoft Paint skills, a parakeet does its best R2-D2 impression. My best R2-D2 impression? BEEP BOOP BZZZ ZIPPY ZIPPY. "That was terrible." Yeah, most parents don't want to pay me after performing at their kid's b... / Continue →

    Always wanted to look like a dildo from the future? Well you're in luck thanks to this soon-to-be-released $70 R2-D2 "full-face" hoodie from wholesaler Mad Engine (and sold at a retailer near you). Not the droid you're looking for? SHOOT ME IN THE FACE DO IT NOW DON'T BE A S... / Continue →

    This is Arenya in her haindpainted R2-D2 shorts. They started off as plain white shorts, then she painted them, now they're R2-D2 shorts. I dunno, it was like a chemical reaction or something. I'm not sure what kind of powers they give her, but I want an Aquaman bathing suit... / Continue →

    This is an R2-D2 inspired Technics 1200 turntable. It was a collaboration between Tex Nasty at Remix Turntable Lab and Full Blown Kustoms. Me? I like my kustoms only half blown. Honestly, of all the stupid change George Lucas made to the original movies I'm surprised he did... / Continue →

    Tired of building your own unofficial LEGO R2-D2's? That's a first-world problem if I've ever heard of one. But LEGO is dropping a 2,100-piece astromech droid in May anyways as part of their Ultimate Collector Series. He stands just short of a foot tall, will cost around $25... / Continue →

    Did I tell you I got to sit in on a table read for a Futurama episode yesterday? Because I did that. Matt Groening and the whole cast was there, it was pretty awesome. I even wrote about it in my diary. See? "That's a picture of Bender with giant X's for eyes and you drink... / Continue →

    This is a homemade R2-D2 crash helmet lovingly constructed by artist Jenn Hall. However she is not REQUIRED to wear it, so don't ask her if she licks bus windows (trust me, she took offense when I did). Tell me a little bit more about that sweet R2D2 helmet you've got. How ... / Continue →

    BEEP BOOP B-- hey handsome. This is a made-to-order hand-knit YAAAR2-D2 sweater from Etsy seller EricaKnit. It costs $450 (~$430 more than a white sweater and cans of black, blue and grey spraypaint) and is NOT the sweater you're looking for if you're planning to attend a tac... / Continue →

    According to a recent series of experiments conducted at the University of San Diego, humanoid robots that are designed to look lifelike make the human brain spaz out when seeing one. Of course, I didn't have to conduct an experiment to tell you that because I have a seizure a... / Continue →

    Japan, pissed the title was stripped from them by the much larger China, has officially regained the honor of homing the world's fastest supercomputer, capable of almost 3x the calculations per second of China's previous record-holder. Me? I'm good for about one calculation e... / Continue →

    Well done. Get it?! Like meat, yo! This is a meat smoker ("just like you, GW!") designed and built to look like R2-D2 by Philip Wise (you're smart -- how do magnets work?). The droid was constructed out of an old 55-gallon drum and comes with everything you need to smoke a ... / Continue →

    The Chinese man who calls himself the 'steel legend' (best known for his scrap metal Megatron tank and being a firm believer that welding-goggles are overrated), has actually created a whole army of scrap-metal Transformers. Don't ask me what characters they are, because i onl... / Continue →

    Apple software engineer Andrew Carol (woman's first name for a last name FTW!) went and built a completely functional Antikythera Mechanism out of LEGO. What the hell's an Antikythera Mechanism? *GW casts copy/paste and goes to toast some Eggos* The Antikythera Mechanism, is... / Continue →

    Remember Black Milk's series of geeky swimwear, including the R2-D2 suit? Well they're back with a $85 C-3PO model to complement the trashcan one. No wonder Luke was always tinkering around with those droids. Get it? Because he wanted a love-bot. Dude would get so excited ... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res version HERE in case you want to print it out poster-size and tack it to the ceiling above your bunkbed. Remember the recently released line of geeky swimwear by Black Milk? Well here's a picture of the R2-D2 model spotted in the wild. Oooooooor on some chick ... / Continue →

    Some guy went and built a giant R2-D2 model that you can climb in and drive around. Why? Because it's awesome and gave him an excuse to hide in the garage away from the wife and kids for a bit. There's a video of him cruising around the driveway after the jump, which is wort... / Continue →

    These are two lil munchkins dressed up as R2-D2 and C-3P0 at the recent Star Wars Celebration V. Also seen in the background is their mother, wearing a custom 'Droid Factory' t-shirt. Not sure how I feel about that. The base of the dresses is sewn using New Look pattern # 68... / Continue →

    This is a shot from Star Wars Celebration V of the special edition R2-D2 Droid 2 that's dropping in September. Ha, and you wonder why Droid users are all sexless virgins! Kidding, I'd bang anybody with an R2 phone. Psychalooloo! But seriously, I would (meet me in the bathro... / Continue →
