The Guy Who Makes R2-D2 Units

Submitted by: fancylad 7 years ago in Science

Costing about $10,000 each, these little droids take two to three years to build and weigh in at 200 pounds.

now he needs to make it follow you with voice commands and bring you stuff with its robotic arm. If it can be full functionally and have rocket boosters i would pay 200,000 for one lol seriously!

This is a club for people making their own, not a business. That $10k estimate is the parts budget. If you want to pay someone to build one for you, it`ll cost a lot more.

"naw... for $10k it better be a midget in a can making blooping noises."

It takes 3 years to make one of these, they should really be charging more... I guess they make a lot of them at the same time...

"Its flashy, expensive and useless. Sounds like a mac."
poo, mate. I couldn`t have said something better.

I am a huge Star Wars fan, but I wouldn`t pay for that.
Not because it`s really drating expensive, but because it just novelty.
I would prefer a miniature, anytime.
The problem is that it is pretty hard to find this kind of thing where I live.

They could have saved a lot of trouble by being original instead and make their own original robot.

It`s just a prettified garbage can with lot`s of expensive devices that the guy purchased and put inside. And he wants you to pay $10,000 for it...

If anyone do buy one I pitty that guy. You could buy a sophisticated Roomba or a good HD movie projector instead you know.

175-200 lbs is not like a linebacker. That guy must not watch football and I think it may be because he`s at a robot convention.
