Looks like it should be possible to fit a Raspberry Pi and/or an Arduino in to R2D2.

Now as to how to program them, I am not sure as this stage. I am hoping they can be interfaced to the logic board that comes with r2d2.


Started building R2D2 with the right leg.

Some parts are only pushed together for now.

Added some more parts to the back of the right leg. Getting to have a fairly decent weight in it.

Finally added the last metal frame to the dome, along with all the bolts for holding it on, (all 14 of them). Also added the bottom footplate to the right leg.

Latest issue is all done.

Left leg is almost done and I am getting there with adding the panels to the dome. Looks like one may have slipped a bit in the 3rd photo.

Dome is pretty much all done. Just need to add a few more allen screws to the inside and maybe a bit more electronics.
