The G2 Project

The G2 Project


The G2 Project is a creation made from different kinds of old and discarded electronic hardware, such as Printers, Scanners, Copiers, Electronic Typewriters, Computers and more. The Official name for this creation is, G26T, however the builders of this project call it '' The G2 Project '' G26T is a Look-A-Like robot, inspired by the droid room in Startours, and Startours is one of the best known attractions in Disneyland Resort Paris. The owner of G26T is known for his enthusiasm for the G2 droids in Startours, and has tried several times to create a G2 droid. As you might have noticed, G26T is in a bad shape. Its computers are unable to restart, one of its claws has been ripped off, he is standing still and can't move an inch. This small introduction is the start of the story, behind G26T's life.

The story of which goes like this:


G26T is in service of a starship, in a far away universe. On one of its voyages, the starship finds itself in the middle of a huge plasmastorm its shieldgenerators are not functioning and all of the 4 hyperdrive engines are failing. Without its shields the starship will be completely destroyed. The G2 droids aboard the starship, mostly 4, are meant to make repairs in case of emergencies. Because the starship is in de middle of this plasmastorm the G2 droids are commended to make repairs to the shieldgenerators, so that the ship won't be destroyed. The G2's are doing everything they can, as fast as possible. But the plasmastorm has such a magnitude of strength, that 3 of the 4 G2 droids lose their life. Even they are not capable of surviving a storm like this one. But G26T is one tough droid. In his battle to the storm, he almost gives his life, but he succeeds in repairing the shieldgenerators, and has even repaired one of the 4 hyperdrive engines. The starship leaves the storm as fast as possible. But G26T is very badly damaged, the plasmastorm has completely destroyed its primary and secondary computers, one of its claws has been ripped apart, and many optical nerves are severed. Only non critical systems are partially functional, and the only thing working properly, is its own self diagnostic service, that is only able to tell him that G26T needs repairs as soon as possible. G26T has become very grumpy after his ordeal with this storm, he does not like to be touched. If that does happen he yell's out loud '' stop touching me '' You would be grumpy to, if your computers where failing one of your claws is ripped off right? Can you imagine how G26T feels? After the starship has escaped its fate of the plasmastorm, they dropped G26T on our planet, in order to have him repaired. But G26T has enough of the starship life. He does not want to work aboard a starship anymore, he has found a nice spot at HTF Electronics, and likes to stay here, he just likes where he is right now.


Building G2 has taken a long time and many failures, like a welding machine that broke down, several electronics that failed to function, computers that seized up and where unrepaireble and many other kinds of things. The G2 Project started on 1 October 2009, and was completed on 25 February 2010. Since then G26T can been seen as an attraction at Wawollie Kringloop, In the past period, the builders put over 500 hours of work into this project. The owner of The G2 Project was helped by a very special person, that made u huge contribution in building the G2 Project, such as the heavily modded MP3 player, that in combination with a self made Kinetic sensor is able to play the sound file '' Stop Touching Me '' but also for many other things.
