Check out this autonomous Raspberry Pi powered R2-D2

This is one very cool mod. This project started out as a broken R2-D2 toy and was not only repaired but modded with a Raspbery Pi running Pasbian to make it autonomous making it almost as cool as the onscreen Star Wars movie version.

From R2`s creator:

"This is a birthday gift I built from scratch for my girlfriend :)
The hardware is made of a broken Interactive R2D2 toy and a bunch of cheap parts purchased online. Inside, the little guy is powered by a Raspberry Pi running Rasbian.
