Security for virtualized datacentres

The Star Wars R2-D2 gadget craze shows no signs of slowing, because the latest... ahem... technical wonder inspired by the somewhat camp robot is a watch-cum-robotic toy.

The R2-D2 Whizzwatch tells the time and kills it

Attached to the R2-D2 Whizzwatch is a miniature R2-D2 that’s controlled remotely by the watch. The timepiece talks to R2-D2 over infra-red and has buttons for moving it forwards and backwards.

Although we can’t confirm if George Lucas wears a Whizzwatch himself, he’s sure to want one when he finds out that the watch can also switch between 12 and 24 hour modes of time display.

Weedle-beep-beep-frrt, says R2.

The R2-D2 Whizzwatch is available now online from Firebox. It’s priced at £20 ($37/€25).
