    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 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 →

    They're not actually thigh-highs, they're just made to look like they are. They are full tights. $20 gets you a pair of both Darth Vader and R2-D2. They're the perfect stockings for letting everyone know that yes, you've seen Star Wars before. Or for tricking people into th... / 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 →

    Because it's clearly somebody's job at Disney to make sure there's a licensed Star Wars version of every product, these are the Darth Vader and R2-D2 shower heads from Oxygenics (and available at Bed Bath & Beyond). Each has three settings: spray, jet, and mixed. R2 costs $25... / 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 a video of a rice paddy in Japan that was grown with a Star Wars theme by planting four different kinds of rice to display 'STAR WARS' and pictures of R2-D2, C-3PO and BB-8. I cannot even imagine the planning that went into this because one time I tried planting a stra... / 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 life-size R2-D2 mini-fridge developed by AQUA for release sometime next year (price TBA). The unit is rechargeable, remote controlled, and has a rotating head as well as light and sound effects, just like the real droid. For reference, this makes two Star Wars min... / 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 Artoo In Love, a worthwhile short about R2-D2 falling in love with a mailbox. It has everything: romance, droids, heartbreak. It does not have pornography though. If you came looking for pornography you came to the wrong place. Keep going for the video.... / Continue →

    This is the felt R2-D2 purse made and sold by Etsy shop krukrustudio ($185). It measures 17-inches (~43-cm) tall and 7.5-inches (~19-cm) in diameter and is even lined with what appear to be blueprints from the Death Star. I felt(!) like that was a nice touch. Remember when ... / Continue →

    This is future mom Stefaney Giordano's R2-D2 painted pregnant belly. I like the perspective of R2's head, that was a nice touch rather than just a top-down version. Now according to my estimates, I put Stefaney at like, what, two months pregnant? I'm not very good at these t... / Continue →

    This is a video edit from Eclectic Method of all R2-D2's beeps and boops given subtitles from the six existing Star Wars movies. Honestly, I excepted a little more, but it did not deliver. Kind of like a Geekologie article -- you win some and you lose some. Unless you're me,... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of Knightscope K5 security robots. They look like a cross between R2-D2, a Dalek, and the kind of buttplug you'd expect to find on a space station. Microsoft already tested a crew of them at its Silicon Valley campus. And you can rent some too, starting as ... / Continue →

    These are the R2-D2 and C-3PO wedding bands designed by jeweler Juan Hidalgo. Which one would you wear? Wait, let me guess -- R2-D2. You know how I knew? Because nobody likes C-3PO. Asking your girlfriend to marry you and wear a C-3PO wedding band is like, the nicest way o... / Continue →

    This is the scale replica R2-D2 cake (previously: this hologram emitting one) created by the folks at Cakes Cove. They make custom cakes for weddings and parties. R2-D2's main body is all cake too -- no rice crispies or anything. Did you know the species of swamp monster tha... / Continue →

    This is the R2-D2 measuring cup set available from ThinkGeek ($20). The stacked cups actually make up his body, and his utility arms are nested measuring spoons! Admittedly, I bet R2 would be a great helper in the kitchen. C-3PO? C-3PO is not a good helper anywhere. "Targ... / 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 →

    These are the R2-D2 swim trunks available from everybody's favorite store in the mall next to an Auntie Anne's Pretzels, Hot Topic. They're on sale for $22.13. For some reason in their online store they're in the girl's section, but that's definitely a dude in the picture. A... / Continue →
