R2-D2 planetarium shows the Death Star in the night sky

Everyone knows R2-D2 as the little astromech droid from Star Wars. Among other things, he displayed the hologram of Princess Leia, which said �help me Obi-wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.� Wouldn’t it be great if you could send a robot to your friends with holographic messages? Sadly, such things are not yet possible. However, soon you will be able to purchase an R2-D2 that does act as a display of sorts.

Rather than showing a princess in distress, this R2 unit will act as a planetarium. You’ll get to see the Tokyo skyline, along with something that you don’t normally see in the sky. No, it’s not a moon, it’s a space station. The Death Star, to be exact. This geeky gadget will be available in Japan this September for around $90
