Trick Your Neighbors With Digi XBee based R2-D2 Hackaday Project
Ever wish Star Wars was real? Well, Chris James of the R2 Builders Club has been working on just that. With the help of XBee technology he has created compact hand held remotes that control a workable R2-D2 robot. The remotes, programmed with gesture control, give the user control of servos, motors, sound playback and more. Star Wars may not be real, but R2-D2 has finally come to life. May the force be with you.
