I could never figure out how Star Wars characters could understand what R2D2 WAS actually saying – but apparently there is some reasoning behind the beeping..

Came across this just today – an R2D2 projector that will handle just about any type of input you can imagine, built in dvd player, iPhone dock and flash memory card reader.

The price? A little steep at almost $3000 over on StarWarsShop.com.

What really got me excited though is this little video which shows everone’s favorite astromech droid in action (as a media playing droid!)
