R2-D2 + Laser + Arduino – YouTube. Daniel writes –

R2-D2 is done. The button and the Perma-Proto board were essential. I wouldn’t have been able to fit it together otherwise. Thanks!

  1. Awesome idea. This project would be a good candidate for the new slip ring! => http://www.adafruit.com/products/736.

  2. Thanks for sharing this! Sadly the slip ring wasn’t here when I started this project. I finished the entire project post with source code: http://thoughtfix.com/blog/2012/3/19/r2-d2-laser-robot-for-cats.html
