Das hier ist wohl die allerbeste Entsorgungsmöglichkeit für leere Bierdosen, die es in Vergangenheit und Zukunft überhaupt geben kann. Das Starwars-Blog hat ein Interview mit dem Erschaffer des Bierbots, Paul Loughridge, den ich ja R2-Beer2 genannt hätte, aber mich fragt ja keiner.

Why did you decide to give R2-D2 a friend?

While rummaging around in my laboratory (garage) for parts I accidentally knocked a tractor headlight directly on top of the beer keg. The diameters of the two match perfectly. That’s when I realized the Force was strong with this one and fabrication commenced. Plus I was exhibiting at a large toy/collectibles show and wanted to have something special for all the Star Wars fans.

What is Beer2-D3 made from?

Beer2’s technical specs:
Head - 1945 chrome BLC utility light shell.
Eye - vintage movie camera lens w/adjustable spring-loaded aluminum casing.

+assorted nuts, bolts, screws and, of course - lockwashers!
