Description

As you all know I'm a huge for of the Star Wars Trilogy.  Smiley  As I was wandering the halls of CES my eyes were drawn to the Nikko booth that was showing an R2-D2 Droid Projector and Chewbacca.  So if you want to see Star Wars like you've never seen before watch this piece.

    I saw this a couple of weeks ago and it brought out the geek in me (doesn't take much), VERY cool. Maybe not $2,500.- cool, but cool nonetheless.

    I wonder how WoW will look projected on the wall. And if it can do widescreen with the same clarity as my 20" Dell monitor.

    Does it have a built-in DVD player? Just regular DVD or BlueRay or HD?

    Yeah the price does kill it for me. Maybe if it were a full sized R2. Oh heck, I'll just wait for the mousebot roomba!

     

     

    In case you don' t know what a mousebot is, it's that little square robot that Chewbacca growled at on the Death Star... K... Geek moment over.

    If roomba made one of those I would definitely buy it! 

    I used to have one on galaxies that I named "Lemywinks."   It seemed appropriate.

    Pretty cool for a Star Wars device however for $2500 you can get a better starter HD projector w/ an HD2 chip.

    With that said for anyone thinking about getting a HD projector Gears of War is da shizzle on a 120" screen. Smiley

    That is totally awesome!  I want one, but for that price I would have to rescue a princess to afford it.

    I think Teddy is right...they need a full sized model that plays HD-DVD and outputs in 1080p resolution.  An econo mousebot model would also be cool...especially if it sqeeled and ran away every time you startled it.

    I agree Arztek, if they could whack in 1080p for good measure in a Mk 2 model that really would be AWESOME. LS
