Sadly, I don’t have any more information on this project besides what you can see in the video. Which is a grave shame, ‘cos it’s brilliant. Greensheller, who is somewhere in China, has made his girlfriend an interactive, multilingual, face-recognising R2D2 for her birthday, using a Pi and some other off-the-shelf electronics. I am in no small way VERY JEALOUS.
This is a birthday gift I built from scratch for my girlfriend :) The hardware is made of a broken Interactive R2D2 toy and a bunch of cheap parts purchased online. Inside, the little guy is powered by a Raspberry Pi running Rasbian.
If anybody reading can find out more about this project, please let us know; we’re all ears!
