Steampunk this, steampunk that, even steampunk Star Trek and now steampunk Star Wars. This is R2S2, a working steam version of everyone’s favorite astromechanical droid created by I-Wei Huang. It won’t be able to calculate a hyperspace jump, but it will probably be able plot a Nautilus trip across some subterranean sea under Australia.
