Who wants a DVD projector?

Nikko Home Electronics has created a DVD projector that looks, moves, and sounds like R2D2. It also has a remote control shaped like the Millenium Falcon. Specs include the obvious DVD and CD player, various memory card slots for cameras and thumb drives, and an iPod dock. R2 tilts to adjust the projection height, even up to the ceiling! The remote lets you drive him around the room too. This link will take you to a slow-loading flash ad, but it is so worth the wait. An additional device from Nikko is a little mini desktop R2 that acts as a wireless PC cam. This has got to be one of the coolest things ever invented! Oh, by the way, retail price for one of these is between $2,600 and $3,200. Probably worth it.
