  • How could you NOT want this? Fully motorized, fully-articulated R2-D2 Projector

    Ok, this thing is incredible! You must watch the video!! Projector, Media Player, iPod dock, etc

    http://gizmodo.com/386007/r2+d2-proj...ct-a-must-have

    I won't even attach a picture, just watch the video! Insane! GIMME!

    R2-D2, an icon of cinema and a comfortable fixture in any home theater, actually uses a projector in the films -- so of course he'd make the perfect DVD projector at home! Able to project from a distance of over 16 feet with an 260-inch image, this is one R2 unit that will soon be playing back the entire message in homes across the country. Check out these features:

    * Picture by DLP from Texas Instruments
    * Project to ceilings and walls up to a 260-inch picture
    * Resolution: 1024x768
    * Contrast Ratio: 1800:1
    * Lumens: 1500
    * Built-in CD/DVD player. Also plays MP3/MP4 video
    * iPod docking station, memory card and USB slots
    * Built-in 20 watt stereo speaker system
    * FM wireless audio out (channels 1 through 7)
    * Full-function: forward, reverse turn 360 degrees and recline
    * Millennium Falcon remote control with removable stand
    * Head turns using Millennium Falcon remote control
    * Plays the most popular R2-D2 sound effects

            I can't check the video just yet, but I love how the quoted description says it will soon be playing back the entire message.

              this was tempting to me when I first saw it, but no built-in Blu-ray player (but I forget if one could be connected) & no HD projection... so no I won't be spending a small fortune on this toy

                        Then I'd suppose you have only ever seen really bad products.

                        You do realize of course that when you goto the movies... it is a front projection.

                        All projection systems are affected by whatever you project them onto of course. Those that think they can just project onto a flat paint wall or the like are going to get crappy images. You need a highly reflective surface but one that is diffused as well. That's why projection screens can be so expensive

                        Some digital projectors that are really intended for PC input can be really bad at showing analog video - simply because they are fixed LCD projectors with really bad scalers.

                        The point of a toy like this tho isn't about having the best quality image - its all about the geek and SW factor!

                        Too bad its not larger.. like 80% full size or something. Would be an awesome party toy

                            WHOLY WOW! I WANT ONE!

                            @garbear

                            Projectors nowadays are great! I've got a Infocus X1 sporting DLP and upto 1080i HD Goodness. The picture is incredibly clean, detailed, and the projector it self is small and portable which is great since I take it to friends houses to play on their walls or garage doors with my Wii or 360 w/hd dvd player. My projector is already a couple years old and has better pictures than most curent LCD tv's.
                            Everybody's got a laughin' place-
                            trouble is most folks won't take the time to go look for it.
