Beer2D3 Droid Full of Geeky Ingenuity, Not Booze

Beer2D3 is Full of Geeky Ingenuity, Not Booze
You know you've watched 'Star Wars' a few too many times when you start to see droids everywhere you look. This might just be the case with artist Paul Loughridge, creator of the droid you see above, called Beer2D3, which was crafted using a Heineken mini-keg and a lot of ingenuity.

Loughridge, who goes by the handle Lockwasher, has made numerous robots and gadgets for shows and exhibits, mostly from discarded waste (like his Trickle Charger bot and RecycleMan and Son). Beer2D3 was created for the San Jose Super Toy show and features a chrome headlight for a head and loaf pans for feet.

Sadly it's non-functional and won't help you find Obi-Wan, or beer, but it's certainly good for a smile and, in our opinion, would make the ultimate geek dorm room accessory. [From: The Official Star Wars Blog via BoingBoing Gadgets]
