The R2D2 Wireless Webcam is proof that you can fool some of the people all the time, if they think you’re a friend of Chewie. We’re talking a remote control lightsaber for pity’s sake, which you use to send your remote webcam trundling around capturing footage of your perimeter. Nevertheless Obi-Wan, do remember that the whopping £299.00 price sticker won’t mask the fact that you’ve bought a basic VGA resolution camera.
R2D2 is both a wireless webcam with adjustable angles and a motorised ‘bot travelling forward, backwards and he even rotates as controlled by the remote. # R2D2′s remote is styled like Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber and when you rotate the handle a control pad is revealed so that the lightsaber doubles as a Skype phone. # The lightsaber has light and sound effects from the films. # The lightsaber’s stand connects to your PC’s USB port allowing R2D2 to be controlled wirelessly. # The webcam is pre-loaded with R2D2 sound effects. # The webcam has a zoom in/out capability and a CMOS Sensor of 628 x 582 pixels
