CNET killed a Star Wars R2-D2 replica from Hasbro to show us what is inside.

Hammacher sells this voice activated R2-D2 for $119.95. This is not the very cool LCD projector R2-D2.
This motorized R2-D2 replica responds to voice commands, navigates rooms and hallways. R2 obeys more than 40 voice commands.

CNET published a series of photos showing the 'killing' of this R2-D2. R2 has navigation sensors, infrared location sensor and a voice recognition module, but no heart.
