These Helmets Will Let You Talk Like R2-D2

by Conner Flynn

We all have our own unique R2-D2 voice impressions, but most of us can’t sound exactly like the droid. But now you can have a helmet that “translates” your own voice into Droid. It also “translates” Droid back into English. Impressed? At last YOU can be the droid!

These helmets were built by Minimum Effective Dose. They don’t really translate anything. It’s just fun to think that they do. Basically they just parrot out the sounds from the movie when you speak into the microphone. If you link two helmets together, everyone else will hear your droid sounds when you speak, but the person with the other helmet hears your unfiltered voice. Basically a two-way walkie-talkie, disguised as droid noises, which is how I imagine that droids actually talk to each other as they make fun of us.

You can get instructions to build your own droidspeak helmets on Hackster.
