Zoe, The Gorgeous Custom Astromech [Video]

R2-D2 is a lovely hunk of metal, but I love seeing the custom droid designs that people come up with. This one is especially cool. This is R11:E1, a.k.a. Zoe. Her creator named her after Zoe from Caprica. She is gorgeous and comes with lots of bells, whistles and LEDs. Here’s a run down on some of the specs:

Zoe is a bit of a high tec girl with a great deal of onboard gadgets. She has her own router and IP webcam which broadcasts as charity events. She is powered by three 25Amp 12v SLA batteries, two running the 24v drive system and the thrid running the 12v electrics. She has onboard, sound system, fire extinguisher, the utility arms and claws work, 140db siren, working Holo eyes, periscope, full smoke machine ported through exhaust, loads of LED and plasma lighting. Full LED el-wire all over, with light reactive paint. She has a full working onboard DLP projector which is setup to display the Princess Leia message from Star Wars.

Not surprisingly, this is the third astromech Podpad Studios has built.

See more photos of R11:E1 and see her in action in a video after the break.
