When R2-D2 isn't busy serving drinks on sand barges, repairing faulty hyperdrives and hanging out with prissy protocol droids, he likes nothing better than kicking back on the nearest bedside table and beaming the time on to walls and ceilings. It's true. And it's the reason why geeky gizmo makers have created the R2-D2 Projection Alarm Clock.
Standing 6.5" tall, this fully-licensed version of the greatest droid in the galaxy projects the time and date in bright red digits on to walls and ceilings at the touch of a button. He even beeps as he's doing it. It's ideal for mornings when you're still squinting from last night's Death Star explosion or you've got a hangover from Hoth. You can also adjust Artoo's 'legs' to set the angle of projection - a real bonus if you can't be bothered moving your head first thing.
Adjustable Droid legs
You needn't worry about being late to pick up your power converters at Toshi Station because Artoo's alarm is a 60 second barrage of highly realistic bleeps and chirrups. It's just like waking up in the Star Wars galaxy minus the wooden acting and clunky dialogue.
Of course even Artoo can't do anything about stupidly bright rooms, so there's also an LCD clock on his dumpy dustbin of a mid-section. And speaking of body-mounted bits and bobs, a mode button allows you to toggle between time, date, alarm and seconds - handy if you fancy timing how long it takes to hum the Imperial March before nodding off.
Small and cute
Whether you're a Star Wars fan, a collector of quirky clocks, an out and out geek, or all of the above, the R2-D2 Projection Alarm Clock is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face every time you hear it bleep. R2-D2, it is you, it is you! So hurry up and hit the Buy button before our entire supply gets abducted by Jawas. To quote the Emperor himself: 'You want this, don't you!'
