Don't be fooled, this is not a delicate model or a toy. This is a completely home built full size R2-D2 replica that moves, head turns, "talks". And the third leg drops down and retracts going from 2 leg mode to 3 leg mode, all by remote control.

Ok, remote control. Not really a robot. but due to the size, weight and power, behavioral problems accociated with many robots would be a huge risk! Also, I want R2 to interact with kids and not perceive them as obsticles to avoid.
