    This is a short video from Youtuber Comedology of a hotel's automated sliding door that sounds like R2-D2 screaming like when he gets electrocuted or spat out of that dragonsnake's mouth on Dagobah. They should probably grease that door. Or advertise that it sounds like R2-D2... / Continue →

    This is a short video of BB-8 from The Force Awakens edited by Youtuber Brian Elder with Windows XP sound effects to imagine what he would sound like if he ran on such a sweet ass operating system. He really doesn't sound that bad except for a couple of the effects. Personall... / Continue →

    This is the BB-8 tire cover spotted by Redditor dubsallday on a road in California. Pretty clever. There's a video of BB-8 in action after the jump which doesn't play right in Firefox but does in Chrome and I don't know about Safari because I didn't test that. I'm going to m... / Continue →

    Because Star Wars everything, this is the $60 R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp available from ThinkGeek. It looks like everybody's favorite droid minus the people whose favorite droid is BB-8 or one of those Gonk droids that looks like a trashcan with feet. You know I used to ha... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a little girl cosplaying as BB-8 at WonderCon 2016 last weekend. Precious, right? She doesn't seem to know what to do with all the people around her watching and taking pictures. I wouldn't either. I do not like crowds. If a bar or restaurant is cr... / Continue →

    This is a compilation of every time R2-D2 saves the day in the first six Star Wars movies. He deserves a medal. Without him, pretty much everybody would have died. Without me? Nobody would notice until my rent didn't get paid or my apartment started to smell. I was just lo... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse of a lifesize LEGO BB-8 being built by the folks at Bright Bricks. Me? I am a Dumb Stone. Oh who am I kidding, I'm not even a stone. I'm a rock at best and more than likely just a dried up piece of animal shit somebody might mistake for a rock provided t... / Continue →

    Full disclosure: I got super sick over the weekend and feel like death and am heavily medicated so nothing is going to make any sense, but I'm going to TRY. This is a shot of Imgurian jmsmith7's wife with her 8-month pregnant belly painted to look like BB-8. I'm just glad BB-... / Continue →

    This is an Epic Meal Time special in which the crew builds a 70,861 calorie, 5,116 grams of fat BB-8 droid. It's predominately ground beef and egg, with some mozzarella, bacon, hotdogs and cheeseburgers used for the detailing. I think I would eat it. "In one sitting?" Don't... / Continue →

    This is a video of NASA roboticist Brett Kennedy discussing what he thinks of the designs of Star Wars droids BB-8, R2-D2 and C-3PO. BB-8 he's not that into from a practicality standpoint, but he digs aspects of R2 and C-3PO. He would only suggest taking C-3PO into space thou... / Continue →

    Disney teamed up with Kay Jewelers (allegedly every kiss begins with K, although I've heard several stories of very special kisses that began with 'Hey Mister, You Looking For A Good Time?') to create this 4-inch BB-8 made entirely out of gold and diamonds. It took over 600 ho... / Continue →

    This is 'R2-D2 In Love', a video edit by WhoIsPablo of R2 plugging his universal computer interface arm into a bunch of love sockets all sexy-like, set to Yello's 'Oh Yeah' (the song from Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Man, it's weird to think there's a droid out there having more... / Continue →

    That's pretty twisted, even for a Jawa. This is a video from the folks at uBreakiFix highlighting the inner workings of the new BB-8 droid toy. I'm not going to lie, I was half expecting him to be filled with nothing but The Force. I was wrong though. He's got a gyroscope ... / Continue →

    This is the $60 R2-D2 Dome Purse available from ThinkGeek (among other places -- shop around!). It looks like R2-D2 and holds things. Not very big things, mind you. Will it be this fall's must-have fashion accessory? I doubt it. Will slap-bracelets and toe rings make a com... / Continue →

    This is the larger than full-scale R2-D2 quadrocopter built by Otto Dieffenbach (who also made that awesome Snoopy one) to show off at San Diego Comic-Con, which apparently started today and doesn't start July 30th like I thought, which explains why it was so easy to book a che... / Continue →

    This is the custom R2-D2 wrap that Instructables user mimaki cg60 created for an old VW bus. He spent over 50 hours in CorelDraw and Photoshop perfecting the design and adhering it to the vehicle. You can use the same process to make an R2-D2 wrap for any car though, provided... / Continue →

    This is the Make Project created by Christian Poulsen detailing how to build your own functional BB-8 droid with a Sphero robotic ball toy, a foam head, and a neodymium magnet. It works pretty well, although his head doesn't stay on top as smoothly as the real BB-8. Still, im... / Continue →

    This is a video from Star Wars Celebration 2015 yesterday of the franchise's new loveable droid, BB-8. Apparently they discussed using an entirely computer generated droid before realizing that would suck and be a George Lucas prequels move and decided to build a functional ro... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the R2-D2 inspired jerseys the Durham Bulls minor league baseball team will be sporting on Star Wars Night, May 4th. Not bad. But more importantly, what do the first 1,000 fans to the stadium get? Ewok bobbleheads? Plastic lightsabers? *actually takes the... / Continue →

    This is a video of the R2-D2 birthday cake Marc Freilich made for his six-year old son Alexander. It has a teensy Pico projector inside so it can project the 'hologram' of Princess Leia followed by 'Happy Birthday Alexander' in the Star Wars font. I like how the one kid at th... / Continue →
