Although the functionality of these DIY Star Wars Masks might make them seem like something straight out of the movies, the reality is that they can be made from home (if you're savvy enough).

The various components in the mask see a sensor placed on the larynx in order to sense when the wearer is speaking. This then prompts the mask to light up and play droid speak that is intended to be louder than the person's actual voice.

The DIY Star Wars Masks help to give a realistic piece of movie-quality excitement to what would otherwise just be a traditional disguise. Best of all, the masks connect to each other via WiFi to coordinate responses and actions.
