Even in a galaxy far, far away, nobody wants to get up and fetch their own beer.
That’s why appliance maker Haier Asia has created a mobile R2-D2 fridge that can bring the brews to you! The remote-controlled robot assistant can roll into your living room and deliver drinks to you and your guests, just like it did for Jabba the Hutt in the Star Wars movies. It was already shown off during a demonstration in Tokyo:
The fridge will feature all the same dimensions, sounds and flashing lights as the original R2-D2 (even his little, rotating head). There will also be a series of covers made for standard refrigerators that will feature the likes of Darth Vader, stormtroopers and C-3PO.
So when can you buy them? Based on a licensing agreement with Walt Disney Japan, the fridge is expected to go on sale next year, according to PC World. The company has not yet disclosed a price, and officials with Walt Disney could not be reached for comment.
May the drinks be with you.
