    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 →

    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 →
