36 Radical R2D2 Re-Creations

From Replica Droid Aquariums to Robot Kicks

— May 27, 2012 — Tech
Any Star Wars fans looking to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Sci-Fi mecca can regal in the number of radical R2D2 re-creations that pay homage to the friendly droid.

The loveable robot appeared in all of the Star Wars films and has been both played by real actors operating the robot from inside in the earlier films and also by remote-control later in the trilogy.

This blue and white creature was also named to the Robot Hall of Fame in 2003, which is impressive considering the many cyborgs that have been created over the years.

Copycat versions of R2 have cropped up in a wide variety of forms from java makers to vacuum cleaners. The robot even made a small screen debut in an anti-smoking PSA where he starred alongside his arguably more annoying sidekick C3P0.
