Steampunk R2-D2 Brings Star Wars To A Less Long Long Time Ago

Share

This steampunk R2-D2 was created by Amoeba Boy, and is composed almost entirely of recycled materials.  The steampunk R2-D2 gives the friendly bot a much different appearance, and gives the entire series a different perspective.  Would I like to see a series of steampunk Star Wars movies?  No, because then they wouldn’t have those amazing electronic breach doors that always get blasted open in epic battle scenes.  In fact, I’m pretty sure that there would be no lightsabers, no robots, and thus …

We’ve taken a look at it and will give you the lowdown. By that, I mean that I watched …

Share

Being AT&T’s Contract Prisoner Is A Real Bummer The R2-D2 Motorola Droid Phone is out!  Yes!  (This is feigned excitement for me because I’m stuck in an AT&T contract and real excitement for those of you who are not.  Shame on you, AT&T.)  This is basically a Droid phone that looks like R2-D2.  The back of this cool phone is R2-D2 Style, and the front is just a touch screen – the sides are silver.  The QWERTY keyboard is still black, but …
