Your R2-D2 is finally ready to interact with you!

With the ‘Build R2-D2’ App you can control your interactive droid directly from your smartphone or tablet. Steer him at will, see what he sees, and activate all his special features!

Features include:

You can switch R2-D2 to operate under command or in autonomous ‘AI’ mode, when he will behave like the wilful astromech in the movies and respond to voice commands.

The video/still camera in R2-D2’s head allows him to take snapshots and short video clips, which can be stored on your mobile device. His programming also includes the ability to detect human faces.

Just like in the Star Wars movies, R2-D2 is able to display holographic messages using a projector which can beam images of Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker onto any nearby flat surface.

As in ‘Return of the Jedi’ R2-D2 has a ‘hidden extra’ – Luke Skywalker’s lighsaber, which will pop up on demand from the pneumatic ejection tube in his head.

As in the movies, R2-D2 can extend his spacecraff linkage and control arms on comman.The flaps on his body conceal hidden droid manipulator arms and probes, which you can extend at will.

It’s alive ITS ALIVE 🤯🤯

He he. All good. Took 2 years to build with very intricate parts at certain stages. All in all the build quality is superb, provided you take time and triple check things as you go along all should end how expected.
The app itself is great and connects as expected.
My only bug bear is that there isn’t a smoother movement for the head and movement of the body controlled by the app.
Also it would be nice if there was a volume control.
And one last point, I’m sure it was advertised or mentioned somewhere that R2-D2 had the ability to record and then project through the projector. ?? If not. No biggie. I’m happy 👍

Very good.

All in all it’s great. I had to take it apart to replace the left leg motor cable as some how I screwed through the original! Now the camera doesn’t work as it looks like when I was taking it apart I snapped the thin black cable so I now need to replace that.
One thing I don’t understand though is that I have updated the app on my iPhone but I don’t get the options to talk, open arms, play holograms, dance etc. I only get the standard move and spin head. On my iPad I get all options. Why is this ?

It’s alive !

Well after a 2 year build the app has finally arrived and all I can say is I’m not disappointed. It works exactly as it should and so does my R2 D2 (amazingly enough!) the image quality of the image and video clips is average at best. But it does work and responds very well. Voice recognition is very hit and miss, but it’s early days yet. Also I don’t get any sound with video clips, this may be normal, can’t find out at the moment. I’m sure with a few app updates in the future, things will be ironed out even more, but for now so far so good.
