We all remember when Princess Leia's hologram was projected out of R2-D2 in the original Star Wars but how about if everyone's favorite cheeky droid projected a virtual keyboard instead? And with sound? That's the idea behind the R2-D2 Original Sound Virtual Keyboard, which works with iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android (of course!) smartphones and tablets, and Windows.
Produced by Runa's new brand imp. on license from Lucasfilm and Disney, this mini R2-D2 is about the same size as an iPhone but has a range of around 10 meters (over 32 feet). Tap the red laser keys it projects and hear R2's iconic noises with every button you press. In an instant you will feel like you are appearing in the next episode of the Star Wars saga!
Take a look (and a listen) to how realistic this R2-D2 and his virtual keyboard is!
