In honor of Star Wars Month, I volunteered to painstakingly watch all six Star Wars movies and compile a list of gadget-like devices I spot in each one. I can promise you I will miss a few and I won’t know what some of them are supposed to be called, but I’ll be damned if I don’t watch all six episodes of one of the greatest film franchises of all time in the name of “work.”

And so we dance.

5:02 – Tabletop Hologram Projector

Built right into Palpatine’s desk. Must be nice. I bet he’s got a Herman Miller chair, too. Chancellorship has its privileges.

14:52 – Homing Goggles

These state of the art goggles worn by the Changeling can track flying worm-dispersal units with Jedi hanging from them.

As a bonus, they turn everything a pinkish-purplish hue and feature arbitrary checkerboard animations over each eyepiece.

21:24 – Regular TV (Not 3D)

TV

Notice that sports programming in this futuristic society is NOT in 3D. There was likely a 3D movement at one point in time, which was later abandoned after it was found to induce headaches and awful 3D-specific movies.

25:50 – Hover Scooter

I’ll pretend I don’t know that Yoda will flip around with the athleticism of a cat that does gymnastics during an upcoming epic light saber battle and instead assume that since he’s so old, he needs a futuristic motorized scooter that looks like a floating bedpan.

32:47 – Library Computer

library

It’s big, it’s bulky, and Obi-Wan had to ask the librarian for help. She insists that “If an item does not appear in our records, it does not exist.” Seems libraries are a universal constant.

34:44 – Spikey Shootey Balls

Luke Skywalker will face the spikey shootey balls someday as a grown man, just as these small children are doing. It’s like when Kramer took that kids karate class on Seinfeld.
