If those furry little inhabitants of the Forest Moon of Endor could utilize Stormtrooper helmets as drums, it stands to reason we should be able to use them for something slightly more advanced. Like, say, Bluetooth speakers.
AC Worldwide is planning just that, with the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for officially licensed Star Wars wireless speakers shaped like the heads/helmets of C-3PO and a Stormtrooper.
With a price beginning at $150, the 12-inch-tall speakers feature a 2.1 stereo sound system with downward-facing subwoofers; they can connect via Bluetooth to smartphones or tablets. Their eyes glow blue when connected, and C-3PO says “I do believe they think I’m some sort of god,” while the Stormtrooper commands, “Move along.”
In just two days the company has raised more than $24,000 of its $90,980 goal. Pledge incentives include numbered limited-edition speakers and gold-plated versions.
