Brian De Vitis took an R2-D2-shaped cooler and transformed it into an incredibly awesome multi-console gaming system. It contains eight consoles (we can identify controllers for the X-Box, Sega Genesis, PlayStation, NES, SNES, N64, Dreamcast, and Atari systems), a sound system, and a projector.

Brian began by simply modifying the cooler to make it look more like the droid we all know and love. Then came the process of gutting his consoles and arranging their motherboards inside the droid body so that all of the controllers could plug into their corresponding inputs from the front. The projector is mounted inside of R2’s dome, just like the droid’s actual projector.

We wouldn’t be surprised if R2-D2 wishes he could play games from all of these classic systems in addition to, you know, repairing starships, other droids and conveying secret messages and plans and so on.

  • The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  • The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  • The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  • The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  • The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  • The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  • The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
