Flying R2-D2 will grace the skies over this year's Comic-Con

Otto Dieffenbach is famous for crafting drones that look like pop culture icons, and this one is no exception. Just in time for this year's Comic-Con, the self-described creator of "Identifiable Flying Objects" has created an R2-D2 model that can fly. From a distance, it looks just like everybody's favorite beeping pedal bin, but in fact it's just a hollowed-out casing for a quadcopter that'll hover over the skies of San Diego. So, if you're hanging out at the show, look up every now and again -- you might see something that'll bring back your memories of Attack of the Clone... actually, no, don't do that.
