The only projector that holds interest for sci-fi fan is the unique Nikko’s R2-D2 Video Projector. So for all you sci-fi buffs and Star Wars fans on the lookout for this projector, here is some great news. The last R2D2 projector is actually available for sale on eBay.
Based on the famous droid form the blockbuster sci-fi saga, this replica is an accurate 1/2 scale R2-D2 with convenient carrying handles hidden in the legs. R2 has a projector installed in his dome, capable of producing up to a 6.6m (diagonal) image. The remote control to control R2’s movements, video and audio functions, it even gives you control over a docked iPod’s menu, which itself can be projected onto a wall, is shaped like the Millennium Falcon. Both R2-D2 and the Falcon also have light and sound effects for the full Star Wars experience.
R2 has a built-in DVD player which plays multiple formats and audio files. Both stereo and surround sound can be experienced using R2’s integrated 20W speakers. It’s even possible to watch TV with the R2-D2 DVD Projector. However, you will need to connect it with another device that can pass the TV channel to R2-D2. This is possible with the connection panel at the rear of R2. RCA, S-VHS and DV-I connections make it possible to attach videorecorders, camcorders, PCs etc.
R2-D2 can also move forward, backwards, turn sideways and his head rotates. When his legs are tilted, it’s even possible to project onto the ceiling. Thankfully, R2 has built-in safety sensors to make sure you don’t crash into the wall, or try to project images onto a wall that’s too close (the wall should be at least 1.0m away).
A must have for every Star Wars fan, R2-D2 Video Projector is on auction for the next five days only. The starting price for this unique projector is Euro 3,500 ($4670). Place your bid on eBay.
