R2-D2 Baby

Finally, the little droid that could from the Star Wars trilogy, R2-D2, has found itself a new buddy with whom he can converse.

A video is making its way around the web that shows an R2-D2 with working lights and sounds that catches the attention of a baby and leads to what you’ll see is quite the deep little conversation.

The only real question here is what exactly these two might be talking about. Who out there is fluent in both gibberish and droid that can translate?

You can check out the video by heading on over to the other side now!

Geeks of Doom Invades Dragon*Con 2010 banner

At Dragon*Con, the 4-day geek convention held in Atlanta, GA, every Labor Day weekend, people in costumes greatly out number those in plain clothes, panelists often attend the fan parties and the droids serve you alcohol.

OK, actually only one droid: the appropriately named BAR2D2.

The droid has a 15-beer capacity that’s proudly displayed around a neon-lit carousel and features a “beer” elevator that pushes the bottles up to the top for consumption. Just above that is the hard liquor mixing stack — a 6-bottle shot station that can serve about 100 drinks without stopping to refill the booze. Using the LazyDrinker software, BAR2 can mix about 5,000 drink combinations on demand with access to a laptop computer (and soon an iPhone), according to creator Jamie Price.

And of course, there’s a remote controlled Ice, Garnish & Juice drawer to make your alcoholic beverages served exactly like they are from boring humans behind a counter.

An observatory at Carleton College was decorated to look like familiar Star Wars droid R2-D2 as a prank by a group of students.

The pranksters draped several white bedsheets with blue and black spraypaint around the building and stuck sheets of paper on the dome and entrance to mimic the droid’s likeness. They even have the sound effects going on in the background while [I’m assuming] employees assess the situation and enter the facility.

For photos of the R2-D2-ized observatory, check out the college’s Facebook page or watch a video of the prank below, which is awkwardly filmed sideways, but no less impressive.

Future Phones

Gizmodo has a very interesting new article about the future of cell phones and the ever-growing technologies associated with them.

In speaking to Imagination Technologies, who created the PowerVR chip that makes your iPhones and Droids as pretty and as popular as they are, it was revealed that in about three years, we could have the capabilities to run PlayStation 3 level graphics on our phones. As with anything involving such a constantly-growing industry, companies are always working with new products, technologies, and prototypes that take time to evolve, which explains the estimated wait.
