Wow, this is amazing. The motorized replica of R2-D2 from Star Wars. It responds to voice over 40 voice commands include “Turn around”, “Move Forward”, “Dance” and many others. The size is 7.5″ (W) x 10.5″ (L) x 15″ (H) and it cost 199 USD (~6,500 THB). R2-D2 runs on batteries, and I just wonder why they don’t make it run rechargeable battery or something. You can watch the video demonstration on Hammacher Schlemmer. Now I want one, only if it can project Princess Leia’s holographic message!
