    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 →

    Ever wanted to own your own full size Omni Consumer Products Enforcement Droid 209 (ED-209) from Robocop before? Well now you can because Hollywood Parts is selling one on eBay for $25,000. Granted it's not how I'd spend 25-grand, but a lifetime supply of bourbon isn't for ev... / Continue →

    They say the way to a woman's heart is through her soles. No, no they don't. These are a pair of homemade R2-D2 high heels from Instructables user mikasaurus (who previously brought us those homemade dinosaur heels). I flipped through the instructions on how to make them, an... / Continue →

    Definitely the droid I was looking for -- get it? Because I like beer so much. Just kidding, I've never had a sip in my life. I'm lying. Or am I? I'm an enigma. An enigma wrapped in a baby blanket surrounded by a cloud of B.O. This is an LSU themed R2-D2 kegerator spotte... / Continue →

    Eyestro-mech, get it? I'm gonna punch myself till I bruise later. From Jangsara, the same makeup artist who brought us the Avengers eyeballs, comes this version of R2-D2 (R2-I2?). Hey -- I'm down for anything that promotes me gluing things to my face. No lie, one time I dip... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like Stephen King, Google employee Paul Carff shows off his homebrew(!) Android beer dispenser. Listen Paul: I don't care what the hell operating system a keg is running as long as the beer's cold and my glass is clean. Kidding, totally fine wit... / 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 →
