R2D2 Rain Barrel

Looking for that perfect gift for the person who has everything? How about the remix below, which features a droid as skilled at hydro-reclamation protocols as he is at looking cute?

Curtis Glover crafted an R2D2-themed rain barrel as part of an annual contest held each year in Knoxville, TN by the Water Quality Forum. Know what's even cooler? It's being auctioned, so you can take this little guy home with you!

And be sure to cast a vote for this awesome remix over at the contest being held by the Water Quality Forum (voting ends May 22nd)!
