R2D2 – the Eternal Source of Design Inspiration

Epic Astromech droid “Artoo” is one of the most famous characters from the world-famous saga “Star Wars”. This robot has become a great source of inspiration for many talented designers and craftsmen. There’s no need to search for the reasons of such popularity because there is only one logic explanation for all this madness – R2D2 is a one god damn charismatic machine and people just can’t resist the temptation to become a part of it. We’ve gathered a small collection of the most original designs and mods based on the original R2D2. And it looks like this little guy’s appearance can be applied to any sphere of our life and here are the proofs.
