Offtopic : Star Wars R2-D2 Projection Alarm Clock Review

Star Wars on Nokia blog ?!! Consider this as an offtopic post :) . I just got the R2-D2 clock for my Star Wars collection . What’s special about this ? This clock comes with Wall Projection. What ?!! You heard it right it comes with Wall Projection. I was much excited to check this.

 Package:

As this is a Star Wars Accessory it comes in a cool package with Star Wars written all-over it. The Package consists of R2-D2 clock and manual. My package also comes with batteries inside. The R2-D2 clock uses 2 x AAA batteries and 1 x LR44 batteries.

Review :

The R2-D2 clock comes with timer screen with Set Time and Mode buttons . With these buttons you can set Time,Alarm and Date. The best part of R2-D2 is when the Alarm goes on.

It surprises you with a projected time with the R2-D2 sfx. The Projection can also be turned on by pressing the ‘Demo’ button. When you press the button the R2-D2 projects the time and greet you with sound for thirty second. The speaker of the R2-D2 is  louder than the Mobile Phone Speakers. The Projection time for Alarm is set to sixty seconds. The Alarm sequence will play three times till you press Off/demo button.

The clock comes with movable head and arms. The head can be rotated upto 300 degress depending on the place to project the time during Alarm.

Verdict :

Pros :

  • R2-D2 Build quality is solid
  • Projection clock works great during alarm
  • Simple to set alarm as most digital watches
  • Cool R2-D2 Sfx

Cons :

  • Small display in clock
This R2-D2 Projection clock can be purchased at MobileFun.co.uk for the price of £21.95.  As a StarWars fan I recommend this clock as a must have in your StarWars Collection. You will love the time projection for sure.

    Hello, is it possible to have the hour projected without the alarm sound the night? All comments on web say the contrary.
