Gadgets such as the R2-D2 Microviewer and the life-size Lego toy don’t excite you much? It’s time to take things to the next level with the R2-D2 Dark Roast Edition designed by the genius team at Instructables. It’s a do-it-yourself project concocted by the team using a BUNN industrial coffee maker with float valve and a generous mix of aluminium, brass, copper and steel welded on top. Building up the Dark Roast Edition obviously requires a dude who’s totally into wires, metalwork and electrical. However, it will eventually pay off when you see the cool astromech running one of your most important morning chores.
