Baby R2-D2

My brother and I decided to make our own R2-D2 robot after seeing the new Star Wars come out. We used an Arduino Uno for it’s brain, a servo to rotate the head, DC motors and an H-bridge, an LED, and a small 8-Ohm speaker so he could talk. This is the first iteration of our baby R2-D2.

R2 lives! He comes to life right on our table. We programmed him to make R2-D2 sounds every 10 seconds or so and to roll around on the table randomly.

Then I 3-D printed a model of R2-D2 and entered him in a 3-D printing competition.
