R2-D2 Lunch Kit

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2011

Most adults don’t really carry lunchboxes, but as lunchboxes get cooler, you will see more of them packing a lunch since we are all geeks at heart. This R2-D2 lunch kit is pretty cool. Adults and kids alike will want to carry this one around.

It’s only $14.99 and measures 5¾” W x 5½” D x 11¼” H and even has integrated sounds and LED light effects. That beats the Lunchbox I had as a kid. The noise that this one makes will likely get your kid in trouble.

Star Wars Operation

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2011

Remember the old Operation game. The funny bone was the hardest to get and I can still hear that buzzer! Now Hasbro is launching a new edition of the popular board game, but they have switched the red-nosed guy for R2-D2.

The game can be pre-ordered now for $27, and it will ship in September. Jawas are no longer the only guys who get to operate on droids. I wonder what R2’s hardest part to remove is.

Motorola Droid Bionic Release Date Scheduled for This Summer

Posted in Motorola by Reuben Drake on June 23rd, 2011

The Motorola Droid Bionic was introduced at CES 2011 and since then it is nowhere to be found, has missed its speculated release dates, and many think that the phone is dead now. Not quite. Motorola has decided to give it a major overhaul and it should arrive this year, with a release date that is oh so close. And yet so far away.

If we can believe a tweet from the Motorola Mobility account, the phone is on track for its summer release, but we don’t have an exact date was provided.

DROID Charge Launching April 28, DROID Bionic Originally Scheduled for May 12?

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on April 18th, 2011

The DROID Charge should be available next Thursday, according to a device lineup sheet from Costco. In fact next Thursday should be huge with the launch of the Incredible 2, the Charge and then maybe even the Xperia PLAY. That is going to be quite a launch day.

Much like the Bionic Man decades before it, the DROID Bionic was rumored to be canceled, but just like Steve Austin it has apparently risen from the ashes and is evident on the device lineup sheet with a May 12 date. Cue up the Six Million Dollar Man sound effects. Looks like they have plenty of time to sort out whatever it was that was causing problems with the device.

If you didn’t already get the Droid R2-D2 edition, than all of you wannabe Luke Skywalkers out there have another option. This R2-D2 case for your iPhone. Nothing is cooler than making a phone look like a Star Wars robot after all.

This one features sculpted details and is a StarWarsShop exclusive iPhone 3G hard case. It may not pal around with C-3PO and beep and chirp at you, but it’s the next best thing to having an actual droid.

HTC Droid Incredible takes a bullet

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2011

John Garber, an employee at Club Halo in Atlanta, was shot outside his club, but don’t worry this story has a happy ending. Thanks to a bit of luck and his HTC Incredible, he is alive. The HTC Incredible was in his breast pocket and saved his life.

He will no doubt be an HTC fan for life. Though while his HTC took a bullet for him, some would say that the trade off might be radiation instead, since he had it in his breast pocket, but regardless he is glad he had it there.


Man claims Motorola Droid 2 exploded in his ear

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 5th, 2010

The Motorola Droid 2, like a rookie soldier in Vietnam, has just claimed it’s first ear. The Droid 2 used by Aron Embry of Texas supposedly blew up on him when he was getting into his car. In an interview with Fox4 he claims, “I heard a pop. I didn’t feel any pain initially. I pulled the phone down. I felt something dripping. I realized that it was probably was blood.”

He goes on to explain: “As I got into the bathroom and once I got to the mirror and saw it, it was only then I kinda looked at my phone and noticed the screen had appeared to burst outward.” Maybe the phone didn’t like his death grip?

R2-D2 Talking Money Box

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2010

The R2-D2 talking money box is a great way to save up for all of that Star Wars gear you want to buy. But R2-D2 doesn’t talk, so really you are just getting a bunch of beeps and boops that you will need Luke to translate.

It’s just $34. Lucas has gotten rich off of you buying all of this R2 gear, so saving money is the least this little droid can help you to do.

New pics of the Droid 2: R2-D2 edition

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on September 5th, 2010

You can expect to see this phone hanging out of your favorite geek’s pocket very soon. It’s the Astromech flavored Droid 2 we’ve all been waiting for. Some pics of the finished phone have shown up and sure enough it still looks like a flattened R2 unit.

This limited-edition Motorola Droid 2 is as close as you are going to get to a pocket R2-D2. This has to be the coolest looking phone ever.

Motorola Droid clone runs Windows Mobile

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on August 25th, 2010

This Motorola Droid clone looks like a toy. And you won’t find the Android operating system here. Instead, it runs Windows Mobile 6.5. Some specs include a 533MHz Huawei Hass K3 processor, and a full sliding keyboard.

Like many cloned smartphones, this one will does dual SIMs. You also get a 3-megapixel camera, a 3.5″ touchscreen display at 800 x 480 resolution, GPS, Wi-Fi and integrated FM radio.


iPhone gets some R2-D2 action too

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on August 18th, 2010

We wish we knew, but sadly no one is sure when the R2-D2 version of the Droid 2 is going on sale, so in the meantime keep using your 3G or 3GS iPhone for a little longer, so you can use this R2-D2 case.

It may not be as cool as the R2 version of the Droid 2, but it gets the job done for a cheaper price. You can pre-order it now for just $30. Awesome right?

First pics of the R2-D2 Droid 2 phone

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2010

There’s been a lot of talk about a special version of the Verizon Droid 2 that will look like R2-D2. The special-edition phone isn’t supposed to be shown until tomorrow’s Celebration V show, but the folks at Technabob stumbled upon this picture one day early.

Yep. The shell looks like R2 alright. Hardcore Star Wars fans will want to get on this one right away when it arrives this September. We think R2 makes for a damn fine looking phone if you ask us.

Original Droid smartphone killed as Droid 2 nears

Posted in Motorola by Shane McGlaun on August 9th, 2010

We have been hearing for a while now that the Droid 2 is inbound. The original Droid has been on the market for about nine months and if you wanted one of the original devices, you have waited too long.

Verizon has the listed the official out of stock notice for the original Droid. The device has gone the way of the Dodo with the follow-up expected on August 12.

Voice Activated R2-D2

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2010

Artoo is back. This time from Hammacher as a Voice Activated R2-D2 toy for rich geeks. This motorized replica will respond to various voice commands, going through your halls and rooms as if easily as he traverses Tatooine.

He can obey over 40 voice commands. Stuff like “Turn around!,” “Move forward two units!” etc. Which makes your droid seem like a lame version of R2, but it’s the best we can do right now. He also has games like tag, relying on his built-in infrared sensor to search for you.
