My technology searching led me to discover a new product that should excite the inner Star Wars geek in all of us. What I have discovered is a a product that uniquely ties together our love for the Star Wars movie and actual movie entertainment itself. You are going to learn about the remote controlled (half-sized) replica of one of the most lovable Star Wars characters of all time, the R2D2 robot. Instead of projecting holographic images before our eyes, this robot will act as a movie projector instead.
You can now impress all your guest by installing the R2D2 in your house. Simply send out invitations inviting everyone over for a unique Star Wars movie viewing. The R2D2 will project a clear image on your screen via any sources that are possible. Other features of the robot include an internal player for CD and DVD player use. You will also find that there are audio/video ports, a card reader (SDMulti-Media CardMemory StickSmart Media), and even a the ability to use your iPod through a built in iPod dock. Thus, you have the technology to watch movies through a high quality projector, or listen to music through built in 20W speakers that happen to sport surround sound capabilities.
The R2D2 robot also has the ability to entertain before or after the movie. This is all made possible through the remote control unit. Through the use of the remote, you will notice that the robot is fully motorized. Simply control the R2D2 like you would any remote control car and watch as it goes in any direction, rotates his head unit, and does many other things. One extra feature is a built in sensor that allows the projecting robot the ability to alert itself when it is near a bad surface area, such as the edge of stairs. This ensures you that the robot will not do anything stupid and throw itself down a set of stairs, putting you out the money you shelled out for it.
Some tips to using the device is that you make sure you set up the R2D2 the right distance from where you are projecting. It is best that the robot be at least 1.5m away from the area in which you are projecting. This will ensure that your movie plays as crisp looking as possible. The best thing is that you do not have to handle this yourself. Your robot comes equipped with a projection sensor that will calculate the distance itself and help with the set-up. Another fun and useful sensor that comes with the R2D2 is called the leg sensor. This sensor allows the robot the ability to prevent itself from possibly getting tangled with something during leg movement. Awesome!
Most of us who are technological geeks should be in love with this projection unit. The makers of the R2D2 robot have gone out of their way to create something that proves that anything can be top of the line. All of the gadgets and extras are what make this device truly wonderful. Star Wars fans are almost certain to want to own one of these, and hopefully they do get their hands on one. The price is currently unavailable because the robot has yet to be released, but we can look forward to it happening in the very near future. Hopefully you found the information I gave you during the review of the R2D2 robot to be helpful. If you are a movie projection buff, make sure to pick one up when they become available.
