R2-D2 Builder Chris James Interview

R2-D2 Builder Chris James Interview: "Few droids in this world are as recognizable as R2-D2, and thanks to the R2 Builders Clubs, impeccably reproduced R2 droids have been seen zooming around Maker Faire Bay Area for the past three years. They are responsible for countless smiles at the Faire, and this year they are coming back with their droids. We recently chatted with group member Chris James (third from the right in the group shot above) to get insight into the group, what skills are needed to build an R2, and what motivates them to participate in Maker Faire Bay Area, taking place this year on May 21 and 22 at the San Mateo Fairgrounds."
