Learn to Speak R2D2!
R2D2 Translator assists in commanding your astromech droid in its native tongue. Unfortunately, the online application cannot translate your R2’s language into English. For that, Comix 411 recommends purchasing a protocol droid, well versed in the “doots” and “beeps” of astro-droids. C-3PO’s and TC-14’s are excellent droids for language translation, with their encyclopedic knowledge of more than six million galactic languages. However, if you are without a protocol droid, this translator helps direct your R2-unit on the cheap.
Read on for helpful phrases and info on setting up a custom R2 ring-tone for your cell phone.
Here are some common phrases for your R2-unit (right-click links to download):
- “R2, lock down the stabilizer.”
- “R2, fix the hyper-drive.”
- “What are the chances of survival?”(When traveling with the Rebel Alliance, it’s probably best you don’t know the answer.)
You can download your 30-character phrases in mp3 format and then set up your phone to play the mp3 as your ring-tone. If your cell phone cannot play mp3’s, use the Kakophone to turn the mp3 into a midi file for your listening pleasure.
