Technology is amazing. Star Wars is amazing. 3D printing is amazing. Put them all together, and you get a “fully operational” Mouse Droid. Star Wars fan and YouTuber, Ali of Potent Printables has created a working model of the classic little robot first seen in Star Wars: A New Hope. This video shows Ali taking the droid out in public for the first time and the reactions and engagement from strangers. While Ali’s droid might not be able to do all the same things the droids to in the Star Wars franchise (like making repairs on the Death Star), this little machine can interact with humans and tell jokes. Take a look:
