Just wondering:



...maybe it's just a geek thing.

That "R2D2" look is actually much older than George Lucas himself! Just look at any Observatory Dome, especially a time-accelerated video as it rotates to open up for the telescope inside. Between 1972 and 1973 (before Lucas made any movie), I was the dome and telescope operator for a sixteen-inch reflector in the Physics building in college (University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez Campus), and the dome was manually rotated and opened (but the telescope was motorized).

Every time I see this "dome look" I remember my college years, and "Star Wars" was a rip-off of it!

YES!!!

I've thought that since the day I picked up the car. I'd paint it to match R2 if I knew it wouldn't mess up whatever it does.

Speaking of which, what does it do? And the one next to it?

It's the daylight sensor. The one next to it is the charging indicator light.
