Students: Alec Bialek
His R2 now includes multiple features:
-10 individually controlled head panels
-3 2-axis holo projectors
-Different moods and sounds
-Remote controlled drive train and spinning head
-His own sound track on an internal app
Although Alec still runs into "literally every possible problem" because R2 "has his own personality," he is learning everything from 4-axis CNC machining to system controls. He has become a better shop tech and engineer through this ongoing project and is proud to show everyone his piece of art. R2D2 can be seen driving around campus and singing to students and faculty, lifting spirits and making Cal Poly an even more awesome place to be.
