R2-D2 projector

The folks at Nikko Home Electronics have a few geeky gadgets for the keen Star Wars fan (with too much money!), including this R2-D2 DVD projector.

It claims “a full 6.44 meters (254 inches) projection of any (digital) material”, can read DVDs and CDs, allows connection to external audio and video devices (although there is a built-in 20W stereo speakers), memory cards and will dock iPods. I’m not sure if it will work too well with your moisture evaporators, however.

Demo

I discovered this demo about it on the Engadget website a few months back: View video demo.

Here’s a snippet of the commentary:

“Can you imagine bringing your friends home and going to the bedroom and playing your video games on your ceiling while you’re laying on the bed?

Better yet, how about your sister? She gets to take it home with her girlfriends — shoot all kinds of pictures, go in the bedroom and once again let’s just see what we just did.”

Norman Goldburg from Nikko Home Electronics

You know, I understand what he’s trying to say … but what he actually said just sounds SO wrong!

Please, please, please: if you’re going to put out a video demonstration make sure you’ve watched it first!
