Geek Weekly: Star Wars R2-D2 Projection Alarm Clock

Post a Comment

If you love Star Wars anywhere, from a “galaxy far, far away” to the reaches of the Yavin system (or earth for that matter), then waking up to a near seven-inch tall Star Wars R2-D2 Projection Alarm Clock is the only way to start your day.


The sassy little droid will get you up on time by showering you with his signature sounds . . . with an occasional swirly thrown in if you are too sluggish to get up quickly enough for him.

One of the all time gripes the world has with alarm clocks is that you cannot see what time they show unless you have the brightness lit up to a point where you get a tan from it, and that is no way to sleep. Other clocks have the optional button to reveal the brightly lit time numbers once you hold it down, but then that requires a tired sleep deprived humanoid to pick it up to hold and see the time when Alderaan will cease to exist (in one piece at least).


The solution is brought to you from the official Star Wars Jedi Council and the handcrafting of Anakin Skywalker himself: the R2-D2 Projection ability. Use the force or your hand to get R2 to project the time in the open air, like he does with various holographic recordings, and you’ll actually be able to see it! No picking up (and dropping) of this alarm clock is required.

Simply drop a few dollars equivalent less than fifty Imperial Credits on Amazon – batteries included – and team up with Han Solo well rested.

Get your own R2 unit to add urgency to your life and maybe you can teach him to play Leia’s message: “Help me Obi-wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.”
