    I actually thought it had something to do star wars and r2d2. If you look at all the "droid" advertising, it says property of lucas films or something like that. The android gut and r2d2 do share some characteristics

    No, the word "Droid" is trademarked by LucasFilm. The Android mascot is not related.

    Ever watch Astroboy? Android looks like the trashcan robot dog in the movie.
