RC R2-D2 Fridge Actually Brings The Beers To You


It’s one thing to have an R2-D2 fridge, like the one we wrote about back in 2008. It’s quite another to have one that’s capable of bringing its delicious contents to you at will. The R2-D2 mini fridge from Japan-based company Haier Asia’s AQUA brand is most probably the droid you’ve been looking for, as it’ll roll around wherever you want it to, while making all the appropriate sounds, and delivering its cargo wherever you are in your home. It looks a little slow, and we’re not sure how long the batteries last; we suspect it might have to be kept in a ‘home base’ of sorts while cooling your beer until you need it, since batteries alone wouldn’t cut it. And we don’t know how much it’ll cost either. All we know is it exists, at least in prototype stage, and Haier claims it’ll be available at some point in 2016.

This Is The Trash Can You’re Looking For


R2-D2. Trashcan. Yes, it’s R2-D2, and it’s a trashcan. Is it blasphemous? Is it cool? We can’t tell. All we know is that Star Wars fury is once again in full swing, and perhaps as dynamic as the movie marketing machine is, so is the merchandising craze. There are Star Wars… things up the wazoo these days, and people are gobbling them up with renewed fervour. The Star Wars R2-D2 Trashcan is an officially licensed Lucasfilm collectible, and is sold exclusively by ThinkGeek in the US. The head pops open when you press Artoo’s foot, to reveal an 11″ tall inner waste bin. And like any self-respecting officially licensed Star Wars collectible, it’s not cheap: $129.

Metallomaniac: Star Wars 3D Metal Model Kits

Star Wars 3D Metal Model Kits

The best things to have are those that you’ve made with your blood, sweat, and tears. You won’t have to go through such lengths for these three-dimensional Star Wars metal models, though. They might look complex and difficult to make, but would you believe that each and every one of them started out from flat, laser-etched steel sheets?

All you have to do is pop out the pieces from the sheet. Then you bend, fold, and connect each part with the other until you end up with the character that you’ve chosen.

An Out-of-this-World Kinda Cool: Star Wars R2-D2 Can Cooler

Star Wars R2D2 Can Koozie


R2-D2 is a bot of few words–okay, of many words–but few of which we can actually understand. The pleasure that comes from having your brew of choice kept cool in this R2-D2 can cooler though, needs no words because silence speaks louder than words ever can. Whether you’re a fan of George Lucas’s epic franchise or not, this particular can cooler is a sight for sore eyes and will keep the temperature of your booze cool, just like you like it.

The R2-D2 can cooler is currently on sale for $5.59.

Take My Money: R2-D2 Infrared-Projecting Keyboard

R2-D2 infrared-projecting keyboard

Tablets can’t replace laptops, although keyboard attachments are helping it get there. The big pain when it comes to working on a tablet is the on-screen keyboard and the limited functionality of some apps. While there’s little you can do for the latter, there are some alternatives you can try for the former, like the R2-D2 Infrared-Projecting Keyboard .

It’s neat, it’s compact, and it looks pretty awesome, especially if you’re a Star Wars fan (who isn’t?) The R2-D2 keyboard connects to your device via Bluetooth 3.0 and is compatible with Android, iOS, Windows 7/8, and OSX. When you “type,” the infrared sensor detects which letter your finger is on and turns it into a digital signal.

For Geeks Down Under: R2-D2 Bra Was Made to Be Poked

That’s probably not the most spot-on usage of ‘down under’, but we couldn’t resist. Obviously this R2-D2 bra isn’t just for geeks hailing from Australia, since I’m sure Star Wars aficionados will jump at the chance to own one. Unfortunately, this interactive piece of underwear isn’t for sale–but you can make one, if you want one.

It’s not just awesome for its design. Like I said earlier, it’s ‘interactive’. All you have to do is poke the nips to see magic happen (in more ways than one, if you’re lucky.)

Full instructions on how to make your own are up on Instructables.
