True "Star Wars" fans didn't wait for "The Force Awakens" to arrive in theaters yesterday to get the frenzy surrounding its release going. They've been buying tickets for weeks for the first "Star Wars" to hit theaters since 2005.
Plus, they've been grabbing "Star Wars" toys like the autonomous droid BB-8. But "Star Wars" fans will have to wait a while longer to get their hands on a real conversation starter.
To impress fellow "Star Wars" fans for years to come, you can buy a life-size (25.6 x 24.4 x 37.4 inches; 121 pounds), battery-operated R2-D2 refrigerator. This isn't just an ordinary refrigerator that'll keep your beers cold.
The R2-D2 Moving Refrigerator, powered by an industrial AC100V battery, will roll around your next party, bringing drinks to your guests. And it can project a movie with 720p resolution as it's doing all that.
Note: For collectors, each R2-D2 Moving Refrigerator has its own serial number and a certificate of authenticity.
It's also equipped with lights and sound to look and sound just like R2-D2 in the "Star Wars" movies. It rolls around on a single battery charge for about two hours at 1 km/h.
It comes equipped with a remote control and is compatible with Android devices (not iOS). And it has enough capacity to keep six cans of whatever you're drinking cold.
Of course, you'll want an R2-D2 Moving Refrigerator. But you'll have to wait until January. That's when its manufacturer, Haier, showcases it at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (Jan. 6-9.)
