R2D2 Easter Eggs
Secret Commands for the Voice Activated Interactive R2D2 Robot
This is a list of Easter Eggs (also referred to as "secret commands") for the Voice Activated Interactive R2D2 Robot.
Easter Egg #1: Follow Me
In Companion Mode, if you say Follow Me”, R2 will turn to look for you and then attempt to follow you around. Walk slowly though, or R2 will lose you and go the opposite direction.
Easter Egg #2: Come Here
In Companion Mode, say "Come Here”. R2 will then look for you and come to you. Since this command relies on R2's heat sensing technology, you'll probably need to kneel down in front of him. He may not come right to you, but R2 will try to find you.
Easter Egg #3: Imperial March Song
Although the Command Guide only mentions the Cantina Song, R2 can play up to five songs.
To play the Imperial March, go to Character Mode by asking R2 "Do You Remember”. Then ask R2 about Darth Vader and Anakin. R2 will then play the song for you.
Easter Egg #4: Sad Cantina Song
R2 will play a different version of the Cantina Song if you ask him to sing it in sad mode. This version is different than the version R2 sings when you command him to do the dance program in Game Mode. The easiest way to get R2 into sad mode is if you ask about Darth Vader in "Do You Remember" . R2's mood status indicator will change from blue to red when he gets sad.
Easter Egg #5: Celebration Song
R2 can also play a different version of the Celebration Song. To play the Celebration song:
- Go to Character Mode by asking "Do You Remember”
- Ask R2 about Chewbacca, Han Solo, and Luke Skywalker
- R2 will then play the Celebration Song
Easter Egg #6: A Special Surprise
- Say "light beam". R2 will turn on his light beam.
- Tap R2 on the head three times.
- Say "game mode" to put R2 into Game Mode.
- Say "dance program" and R2 will do a special dance for you.
Easter Egg #7: See R2-D2's Reactions!
R2 will respond in a good way to these names:
R2 will get scared of you mention these:
The Death Star
The Star Destroyer
||The Voice Activated R2-D2.|
This motorized replica of the headstrong little "droid" from the iconic Star Wars films responds to voice commands, navigates rooms and hallways, and makes any home feel like it has been transported to a galaxy far, far away (play the video.) R2 obeys more than 40 voice commands ("Turn around!" "Move forward two units!") and he plays games like tag, using an infrared sensor to search for people in a room. His sensor helps him follow behind you, or it can be set to detect motion, turning R2 into a room sentry that sounds an alarm when a secured area is invaded. R2's lights, swiveling dome top, and distinctive happy and sad sounds faithfully mimic the real thing, right down to his occasional "bad mood." (A simple command of, "R2, behave yourself!" snaps him out of it.) R2 can also replay sounds and dialog from Star Wars. movies, answer yes-or-no questions, and dance while playing the famed cantina music. Requires four AA batteries and four D batteries. Minor assembly required. Ages 8 and up. 15" H x 7 1/2" W x 10 1/2" L. (6 lbs.)
