BaR2D2 – The Bar Droid That R2-D2 Couldn’t Be
Remember when R2-D2 was taken by Jabba and converted into R2-D-Tray with a drinks holder so that the little droid could serve the guests on the barge? (see pic)
Well, if Jabba had seen this beauty then R2-D2 could’ve stayed unmodified and Jabba’s party would have gone according to plan as I doubt that this robot has hidden weapons.
The BaR2D2 is a radio-controlled bar-bot, with a “motorized beer elevator, motorized ice/mixer drawer, six-bottle shot dispenser, and sound activated neon lighted” and took 5 months to complete.
According to its creator:
The concept for BaR2D2 was born when a friend showed up to an event with a radio-controlled cooler. We joked about taking the idea to the next level and in the Spring of 2008, construction began.
All you’d need is a set of robot pole dancers and a robot DJ and then the droid party is go!
