In case you haven’t quite gotten the impression from my posts last week, CES is huge . For every gadget and gizmo I wrote up, there were a dozen or more that got left by the way side. In most cases, I was okay with that—you can’t see everything.
But finding out that I missed an R2-D2 projector, well, that nearly killed me. Not only does R2 project 800×600 video out of his eye (the geek in me feels it necessary to point out that the actual holo-projector is the little lens next to the eye), but he has built-in speakers, a DVD player, and—the coup de grace —an iPod dock. And, apparently, you can make him follow you around via remote control, though I wouldn’t suggest any place that requires the use of stairs .
I don’t have price or availability information, or even a vendor, so I guess that means I’m out of luck for the time being. Maybe for my birthday this year, I can get a real R2-D2, instead of just the cake.
