R2D2-Shaped DVD and Videogame Projector 147

Posted by timothy
from the pinch-me-carrie-fisher-pinch-me dept.
Rikardon writes "Nikko Home Electronics has created a DVD projector that looks and moves like R2D2 — with a remote control shaped like the Millenium Falcon. The specs aren't bad: a claimed projection area of up to 6.6m; built-in DVD and CD players; analog and digital video and audio ports; various memory card orifices, and an internal iPod dock. Favorite feature: tilt the legs to adjust the projection height, up to and including projection on the ceiling. No word on whether it projects holograms."

    I'm not sure how one can get a projection area of 6.6 m, which is a unit of length.

    Looking at their (awful, difficult to navigate flash based) website, I discover that they actually mean 6.6m diagonal.

    The reason they don't show a tag is because it isn't a vendor site, so you have to go click on your country to find a vendor..yadda yadda yadda you eventually get to see a price in your country. US$2,900. €2799

What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
