So you like technology? How about Robots? Star Wars? I have always liked robots and computers and decided to make a robot my senior project. I didn't want some kit or cheap tiny thing, no, I wanted something real. A real robot I could look at and feel proud of. This is the closest thing I could get to a video of an interview with a builder. Astromech.net has more info. You can explore the FAQ section to find out how to build an R2D2 or any type of R2 droid. There's even a Wall-E club founded by one of the guys (Mike Senna) on the builders council. I went to a event hosted by Mike Senna and met some really cool people too. They're all really cool. Also got free parts for my droid since I'm doing this on a budget. Builders will gladly give you any broken or old parts to use, or they'll point you to a place you can buy less expensive parts.
