In 2004, Katie Johnson was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. Her father, Albin Johnson, wanted to build an R2-D2 droid replica painted pink for her favorite color. It was named it R2-KT in her honor.  

Although Katie has passed, the droid continues to be a symbol of hope in dark times for many Star Wars fans appearing at charity events often.  R2-KT and a similar model called QT-KT have made appearances in many Star Wars properties including the Clone Wars animated series and this cameo in LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles:



Now it seems that R2-KT will most likely appear in the newest live action Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens.

It hasn't been long since the folks making Star Wars: The Force Awakens showed all that new droid BB-8, is an actual practical puppet. And yet designer, Christian Poulsen has already made his very own replica for only $150. With just a Sphero Bluetooth RC Ball and some magnets, he madethe droid we're all looking for.
