The Atlanta Area R2 Builders Club
Who We Are
We're fans basically, we just happen to like building robots from the Star Wars films. We're a group of people who like to tinker, enjoy solving engineering problems, and creating things out of raw material.
Where We Are
By and large, most of our members are from the Atlanta Area. We have members spread throughout the state of Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and South Carolina. We've had several of our members host a 'build day' in Cartersville, GA; Woodstock, GA; Tucker, GA; and even Chattanooga, TN.
All parts are sold on Astromech.net.

The Ardu-D2 project is an open source initiative to support the creation of an Astromech robotic control system using Arduino-based microcontrollers to provide customized control for lights, servos, sounds, and other electionics.
