Homemade R2D2s

The Bay Area R2 Builders showed off four fully-functioning R2D2 units at Maker Faire. They cost around $10,000 to build, and take a couple of years of work. http://www.wired.com/video/builders-construct-10000-fully-functional-r2d2/24892334001 to video report. Link to website.

The hell with Artoo. I want an obsequious, effeminate C3P0 I can beat with a baseball bat when I get pissed off.

Ok, that was harsh. But I hate that character.

Very interesting to see these R2D2's evolve into the real thing as technology gets better and better. And then one fine day somewhere in the future, someone will proudly present a reallife R2D2 that has as much intelligence and capacities as the movie-character. That'll truly be a Wow-Moment.
