Custom built by Mark Bongo of Major League Mods, this little astromech droid that could comes with […]
09/11/2012, This might not be the droid that you are looking for, but it definitely is the luggage that you have been waiting all your life – ever since R2-D2 made its appearance back in the 1970s with the debut of Star Wars, enthralling the imagination of geeks and non-geeks worldwide in a grand space opera conjured by a very young George Lucas back then. Since then, we have seen our […]

Well you don’t have to; thanks to the power of technology we can have our very own planetariums without having to resort to such measures.

Made from what is most probably […]

This motorized replica is smart enough to respond to various voice commands, going up and about rooms as well as hallways in his usual gait. Capable of obeying over 40 voice commands (“Turn around!,” “Move forward two units!” are just two of those), he can […]
