Washing Duty Is Probably Not How R2-D2 Pictured His Retirement

By Gizmodo on at

He helped the Rebels defeat an evil empire, but little did R2-D2 know his glory years were behind him, and ahead lay a lifetime of menial chores including gobbling up your washing so that it doesn’t end up as a dirty pile on the floor.

Bad news for the little astromech droid, but good news for you because this $16/£11 R2-D2 laundry hamper is all kinds of wonderful. It collapses flat for those rare times when all your washing is actually clean, but pops-up to 33-inches tall for storing a battalion’s worth of smelly uniforms—or maybe slightly less than that.

Pair this with some kind of C-3PO coat rack and your parents/roommates/partner/boss won’t ever again complain about all the laundry you leave lying around. [ThinkGeek]
