Nikko R2-D2 DVD Projector

I was reading through some blogs today, and I came across one called The Tech Inside. I discovered something there that I am pretty excited about. It is an R2-D2 DVD Projector. View his post at This went straight to the top of my wish list on Follow this link to see more details: Nikko R2-D2 DVD Projector.

This thing is pretty sweet. Not only does it come with a remote-controlled R2-D2, it has a pretty cool replica of the Millennium Falcon for the remote. From the video it looks like the Falcon can play at least Han's voice. Here are some of the specs:

  • Project to ceiling and walls up to a 260"
  • Picture Resolution: 1024 X 768 XGA
  • Contrast Ratio: 1800:1
  • Lumens: 2000
  • Bulit-In Cd/DVD Player. Also plays MP3/MP4 video
  • iPod Docking station Memory card and UBS Slots FM Wireless audio out (channels 1 through 7)
  • Full-Fuction: Forward, Reverse turn 360 degree and recline
  • Millennium Falcon Remote control with removable stand
  • Head turns using remote control
  • Plays the most popular R2-D2 sound effects

This is definitely on my Father's Day wish list, though I know we can't afford it right now. This is the ultimate home entertainment system. It has a port for an i-Pod, Wii, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. It has a built in DVD player. There are USB ports that enable you to play audio/video. I can't think of anything this thing doesn't have, short of a bottle opener. This is my gadget of the year. Hopefully I am not the only nerd excited about this.

I love this too! The Millennium Falcon remote would probably go missing at our house, though. The kids would want to play with it all the time. :-)
