R2-D2 Bike Helmet

 

If you happen to be a Star Wars fanatic, you will surely be impressed with the R2-D2 bike helmet. Jenn Hall, a Star Wars fan herself, designed and created this catchy bike helmet from a normal bike helmet.

Sparked by her passion for Star Wars gadgets, Jenn turned her motorcycle helmet into a R2-D2 helmet, satisfying her interests and improving its visual quality at the same time. Wholly made using Jenn’s own DIY method, the helmet transforming process comprised of the scuffing of the existing helmet paint, adding consecutive coats of spray paint, then arduous cutting and peeling of masking tape. After the spray job, accessories like PVC tubing and blinking lights are added. Finally, a heavy layer of clear coat is added, resulting in a livened up motorcycle safety helmet.

This R2-D2 Bike Helmet was only a one-off creation by Jenn Hall, and she has no plans for mass production at the meantime. Judging how fascinating and exquisite this helmet looks, it may be a piece of disappointing news that this R2-D2 helmet is not available for sale. However, good news is that she has generously provided a step-by-step guide in her blog instructing the creation process of the R2-D2 helmet, for the benefit of interested readers to make their own. Her instructions are easy to follow, so with some effort put in, you can have a customized R2-D2 helmet for yourself. With the DIY R2-D2 helmet, you can speed off on your motorcycle looking like R2-D2 from Star Wars.

Kinect-Powered Jedibot for Star Wars Dueling

Jedibot

 

Seems like the Xbox Kinect has provided lots of opportunities for programmers and engineers to produce products that when combined offer an excellent gaming opportunity. Take today’s hack for example called the Jedibot.

The Jedibot is robot designed by students at Stanford University; it utilizes an articulating arm connected to an Xbox Kinect to produce a sword fighting enemy. The students created the Jedibot by combining mathematical formulas and programming skills they learned in the Intro to Robotics course.

Able to swing a sword or lightsaber every 2-3 seconds the Jedibot can track the movement of an enemy weapon and produce an attack or defensive movement. This ensures you can recreate some of those lightsaber fighting scenes from the Star Wars films.

Currently in development with the students and professor of the course, hopefully fingers crossed they can increase the speed of the Jedibot and make it available to buy. I would get one, would you? If you are not sure check out the video below.
