R2D2 Beanie

First of all apologies for the lack of blogness last week…I was celebrating my 25th birthday so needless to say my brain stopped functioning halfway through the week. On to new celebrations though! If you didnt know, today is Star Wars Day (because its May 4th…may the force be with you…may the fourth be with you….get it? har har) so in honor of this I present a most awesome example in domestic geekery….

R2D2 Beanie

Crafty knitter Carissa knitted this adorable hat for her nephew and like all things good in this world, it blew up on the internet. Unfortunately she isnt taking custom orders…

” Okay, guys. That’s enough. I’m flattered. Really. But no more. Not for now at least. …. No more custom orders. I can’t knit the same hat over and over again for the rest of my life”

Well luckily for us she was so kind to share the pattern on her blog for FREE and in her own words said …

“I recommend you try to find a knitter near you or even learn to knit yourself. It’s a great hobby.”

Well, I know for sure Im adding this to my ever growing queue of awesome geeky themed knits!

DIY Mobile Bar

This week on Instructables user jamiep posted up instructions for how to make your own Mobile Bar aka BaR2D2.

If only the frat boys of the world could figure out how solder and hard-wire, theres nothing that could stop them from building a beer slinging army of BaR2D2s! Actually, just from skimming the instructions, it doesnt look like a terribly complicated project. In fact with some elbow crease and patience just about anyone could construct this project even if they’ve never worked with robotics before. The creator of this project described BaR2D2 as “is a radio-controlled, mobile bar that features a motorized beer elevator, motorized ice/mixer drawer, six-bottle shot dispenser, and sound activated neon lighting.” Apparently its also “driveable” so you can “take the party on the road.” Im not exactly sure how this is drivable, but I can only hope that they mean you can ride it home on autopilot after you get to drunk to drive.

Below is a video of BaR2D2 in action and click here for step by step instructions to make your own.
