You Can Now Turn Your Amazon Echo Dot Into R2-D2 With This Smart Speaker Mount

If you’re looking into revamping your Amazon Echo Dot at home, then we might have just the thing for you. There’s an Etsy shop that sells R2-D2 speaker holders that will surely make your smart device appear even smarter. After all, there’s no better way to accessorize a smart device than making it look like one of the droids from Star Wars, right?

Smart speakers are undoubtedly the next big thing in the realm of gadgets and technology. They come in sleek and sophisticated designs and are loaded with impressive features. The Amazon Echo Dot, for one, features a hockey puck-shaped body that can certainly complement any interior design. Although we have nothing against it, its simple design can get quite boring to look at too sometimes. And that’s why we suggest getting one of these geeky speaker holders from the Etsy shop BigUpCreative.

The shop offers the Star Wars-themed speaker holders for both 2nd and 3rd generation Echo Dots. To be clear, there’s a slight difference between the two generations in terms of appearance. So, it would be wise to check first which version you have on hand before purchasing your holder. The 2nd generation features an all-plastic body while the 3rd generation has a mesh fabric covering on it.

The holders are 3D printed with polylactic acid (PLA) on an FDM 3D printer. As per the seller, PLA is “a biodegradable plastic made from sugar cane or cornstarch.” So, to prevent warpage, avoid placing it inside a hot car or under direct sunlight.

Each set includes four separate parts—a top dome, two shoulders and a bottom body. All you have to do is place your Echo Dot in the middle of the dome and the body. Afterward, snap the shoulders on each side to complete the look of your own personal droid. And what’s even more amazing is that the dome actually has openings that show the ring light of your speaker. So, when your speaker lights up, it will look just like the real R2-D2 straight from the movie.

These made-to-order smart speaker holders come in either black or white. However, you can also paint it if you want to. Just keep in mind to sand the surface lightly before painting it. Also, do note that the holder doesn’t actually include an Echo Dot smart speaker with it.
