Everyone knows R2-D2, the rebel droid that fought alongside his Jedi friends through the beloved Star Wars films. But few are familiar with his R2-Q5 counterpart, an R2-series astromech droid that worked for the opposition – the Galactic Empire. The Japanese electronics brand imp is showing some love to the bad guys with the release of the R2-Q5 Virtual Keyboard.

First appearing in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, we imagine Disney’s revisiting of the world George Lucas created may see the return of the black and bronze covered chirping droid. The gadget is shaped like a mini R2-Q5 unit, and projects a red QWERTY keyboard onto any flat surface, along with emitting the droid’s voice. It’s equipped with Bluetooth HID compatibility that works with iOS and Android mobile devices along with Windows and Mac OS X desktop applications. The R2 keyboard will be released on May 4th (Star Wars Day), and will retail for $325 through Amazon’s Japan webstore. [Purchase]
