Star Wars Droid Translator Helmets turn you into DIY-D2

Two DIY Star Wars enthusiasts have taken to the shop to make a very strange invention. This is the Droid Translator Helmet, and it'll turn your voice into Droid-speak for a second helmet to pick up and translate. Sort of. There's a bit of a trick to it.

Knights of the Old Republic is easily one of the best Star Wars games out there. Star Wars Galaxies still tops my list, but sadly there's no good way to actually play that one ever again. KOTOR was one of the first times you could really engulf yourself in the Star Wars universe, and really feel like you were making a difference.
