R2D2 Wireless Webcam – Lucas franchise uses the force to extract much money from geeks


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
