R2 - The Home Entertainment System...

Thanks to twicedead who found this:

There’s only one thing better than a home entertainment system and that’s a home entertainment system that can follow you around the home in the shape of R2-D2.

This is a fully-working robot that stands just under two-feet tall and as CES drags on this is one of the most fun looking gadgets I’ve seen, if for no other reason than R2’s lens is a fully working, LCOS home cinema projector. It can project images up to 80in wide in 800x600 pixel resolution. It has an in-built DVD/CD/MP3 player, FM radio, speakers, outputs for hooking up to surround sound systems, a USB slot, memory card reader and – if that’s not enough – a pop-out iPod dock.

And the best bit is the remote control, a big unwieldy thing in the shape of most boys’ favourite starship, the Millennium Falcon. The control pad slides out from underneath and I’m pretty sure that if you got one of these you’d never need friends again.

It’s built by Nikko Home Electronics and the show reps said that this going to be available in the UK in the coming months. The cost? A very reasonable £1,500. Jump now for more pics. -Martin Lynch
