LEGO WeDo 2.0 R2-D2

Star Wars Astromech Droid R2-D2built with LEGO WeDo 2.0 set

LEGO WeDo 2.0 R2-D2 ⇒ We2-D2 !!!

Here's my version of the famous astromech Droid R2-D2, built with the parts from just one LEGO WeDo 2.0 set #45300. Its name is We2-D2! The main feature of this LEGO WeDo 2.0 robot is a mechanism that allows it to drive, steer, and spin its dome head. The building instructions also show how to program R2-D2 to receive remote commands, and avoid obstacles. By attaching the Motion Sensor facing down at the bottom of the robot, it will also be able to follow lines on the ground, as my other WeDo 2.0 robot Zig-Zag. Teachers can use this Star Wars - themed LEGO WeDo 2.0 project as an inspiration to introduce their students to service robots, and also give them an idea for a base model that can drive and steer, so they can build any other custom robot from it.
