Now this is the droid we’re looking for

PopSci reader Brian De Vitis converted and R2-D2 cooler into the ultimate mobile gaming droid with eight consoles, a projector, and a sound system.

To get rid of the mess of wires from his many video game consoles, PopSci reader Brian De Vitis decided to repurpose his R2-D2-shaped cooler. The engineering student modified its legs and repainted it to look more realistic. Then he stacked the motherboards from the eight consoles on shelves inside, added a sound system, and rearranged the inputs so he could plug in controllers from the outside. To watch all the gaming action, he added a projector in the rig’s dome, just like the real R2’s.
