R2D2-Shaped DVD and Videogame Projector

timothy posted more than 6 years ago | from the pinch-me-carrie-fisher-pinch-me dept.

Robotics 147

Rikardon writes "Nikko Home Electronics has created a DVD projector that looks and moves like R2D2 — with a remote control shaped like the Millenium Falcon. The specs aren't bad: a claimed projection area of up to 6.6m; built-in DVD and CD players; analog and digital video and audio ports; various memory card orifices, and an internal iPod dock. Favorite feature: tilt the legs to adjust the projection height, up to and including projection on the ceiling. No word on whether it projects holograms."

I know that this is the geekiest thing out there... but I was impressed with the actual tech specs of the projector and all of the connection options. Still a little on the pricey side ($2900), but I LOVE all of the remote control options. And how cool is it that it's your own little RC robot as well?!?!

Wow (1)

pavon (30274) | more than 6 years ago | (#23342322)

One of the projects on my list of things to do (most of which will never happen till I retire) has been to build a R2D2 karaoke machine, complete with lyrics projector, and lightsaber^W microphone ejecting action! And a gin and tonic dispenser, of course.

I wasn't thinking of using anywhere near as good of components, though. This really is impressive.

6.6m area, eh? (2, Informative)

I'm not sure how one can get a projection area of 6.6 m, which is a unit of length.

Looking at their (awful, difficult to navigate flash based) website, I discover that they actually mean 6.6m diagonal.

esocid (946821) | more than 6 years ago | (#23342022)

This is meant for hardcore star wars fans, so it's a pretty decent price for the setup that it has but for even less you can get a projector that really beats this one into the ground. Its resolution is only 1024x768 (4:3), so personally I would spring for a projector that has a better aspect ratio and larger display area. But like I said, this is for hard core star wars fans.

Re:6.6m area, eh? (5, Insightful)

iamdrscience (541136) | more than 6 years ago | (#23342162)

Have you not bought a television or monitor in the past three decades? Screen area is almost always described the length of the diagonal. It's a little confusing when comparing screens of different aspect ratios, but it's way more succinct to talk about your "42 inch" screen than your "902 square inch" screen, or even your "40 inch by 22.5 inch" screen.

True enough, but you don't generally see such screens advertised as 42 inch area, which is the point I was trying to make.

Re:6.6m area, eh? (1)

veganboyjosh (896761) | more than 6 years ago | (#23342378)

A little confusing when comparing different aspect ratios? I remember learning the "it's measured on the diagonal" thing in high school TV class. It occured to me then and it occurs to me now that someone could come up with some wacky aspect ratio of 42:1 and still advertise that they have a ~42.whatever inch screen. Now that the ratios are all over the place, there needs to be some other standard.

Re:6.6m area, eh? (1)

kesuki (321456) | more than 6 years ago | (#23342930)

the reason why 'film' has crazy all over the place resolutions is because 'analog' film cameras, can use 'less' film by shooting on the same width film but with a narrower top to bottom exposure. that's why film is all over the place, but if digital film cameras ever replace 'analog film' for shooting, then they'll all be nice and standard size, or maybe they'll still let you screw around with the ratio to get tighter compression... oh well...

It was an RCA 12" model with a single button remote. This single button pulled back a striker that made a noise that changed the channel. You chose which of the channels was an OFF position.

The big problem with this design came years later. You see, the TV wasn't real particular which metal clicking sound it took its' orders from and one night when I was sneaking in after curfew I took some change out of my pocket and put it beside the TV.

I'll bet you can guess what happened next. The TV came on and it was loud enough to wake up everyone in the house.

snarfies (115214) | more than 6 years ago | (#23341848)

I see they are ashamed to tell us how much they want for this. There's no mention of a pricetag - or even any method of purchasing this. Or if its even actually available - right now this all smells like vaporware. I eventually found the C-net review, after allowing the story link to allow obnoxious popups, and they say it will cost "at least" $2500. I'm pretty sure I can build my own working R2D2 for a fraction of that.

Re:Price? (1)

You can almost always build a niche product cheaper than you can buy it for, but that is beside the point.

R2D2 is actually a perfect beginner home robot. About 15 years ago I was saying that a home robot would be the entertainment center with a projector and media player. It would be a phone, message center, wireless networking, vacuum, etc. etc.

In a few more years, I can really see apartments or dorm rooms with no stereo, no "computer," no TV, etc. You have one device, positioned so its charging booth is a good location for the projected screen. When it is not in use, it will roam the home vacuuming and taking the occasional picture for security.

LOL, there really is an answer to that one!!

Currently and in the near foreseeable future, robot interaction in the environment is limited to avoidance and non-specific movement. The idea that R2D2 could go to the flour bin and get 3 cups of flour, 1 tbs sugar, 1.5 tsp kosher salt, 2 tbs olive oil, 1 1/8 cups tepid water, and 1 1/2 tsp yeast and put them in a bread machine that is either built in to itself or on a table is too far away.

What I described is all 100% possible right now. The only issue is the work and investment to package and integrate it and engineer it down to a manageable cost and durability.

This little guy has no problem playing rebellion material but disks with imperial encoding get ejected with extreme prejudice.

WOW. Way to report on something that's been reported on over 2 weeks ago.

That one's a little pricey... (1)

I'd settle for one of these:

One tenth the price, and it'll bring you beer!

I've played with one of those - sadly it will only bring you beer if your pre-program the path to the bar and back, and have a bar-tender to put the beer in it's holder, and send it off on it's way. It also goes eats through batteries like crazy.

But it does an awesome little dance to the cantina song if you ask it to! And it can play tag.

Are you kidding? Sure, the difference between a beer holder and an iPod holder is minimal but let's get serious please.

It's pricey but it's just a step away from having some IA software to fulfill some other functions and you will have the real R2D2 which was a utility support robot.

Now we just need to change the moon into a giant space ship. Maybe I will work on it tomorrow!

Looks like someone was listening to Radio 1 this morning :) The Chris Moyles Show effecting /. I never ever thought it!

Where's the power cord?

I didn't see any mention of a battery, charging station either.

If their site gets slashdotted, instead of the standard 404, maybe it'll say 'These aren't the droids you're looking for'.

So if you make him project Star Wars: Episode I will he sound an alarm, spin around and spit out the DVD?

Already Done? (1)

Hasn't an R2D2 projector already been created? I thought I remembered seeing one on YouTube or something probably 2 years ago.

Re:Already Done? (1)

Actually it turns out it was a little over a year ago that I must have seen something about this. I did a search and came up with plenty of articles that date back to January 2007 when it was shown at the Consumer Electronics Show.

wtf? (-1, Troll)
