Even Artoo got in on the act at Maker Faire and made his very own flip book with the help from Eddie at lightmoves.net. Check out the video
I’ve been inundated with emails from people who saw us at Maker Faire. Here’s some of the reaction from the internet and media out there.
- NY Times – their tagline “R2-D2 Was Everywhere!”
- Official Star Wars Blog
- Gizmodo – DIY R2-D2 Is Even Better than the Real Thing
- Laughing Squid

And if you Google on “Maker Faire R2D2” then you should get a sea of blog posts and videos 🙂

I’ve had a crazy couple of days at Maker Faire, and we still have one more day to go. I’ll be posting a full update and photos tomorrow, but just had to post this tonight.
We won a Maker Faire Editor’s Choice award for our creations and participation. This is a great honor and surprised considering the 100’s of cool Makers and their creations at the event.
Make Faire is a production of Make: Magazine, which the R2 Builders Club was featured in a few years ago, and is held every year in San Mateo, California, with in excess of 45,000 people in attendance.
