Drew Karpyshyn revealed the title of his newest Star Wars novel: The Old Republic: Revan.  Karpyshyn talks about the book on the official TOR website.

Q: How does it feel to finally reveal that the title of your latest Star Wars book is Revan?

A: I’d like to start by saying how gratifying it was to work on this book. Knights of the Old Republicâ„¢ (KOTOR) was my first creative foray into the Star Wars universe, so writing Revan felt a little bit like I was returning to my roots. I also know a lot of fans have been patiently waiting a long time to find out what happened to Revan after KOTOR — it’s probably the number one question I’m asked on my website. I’m glad the story is finally being told, and I’m ecstatic that I’m the one who gets to tell it.

Droids Out of Work, Begging For Credits

DONA is a donation motivating robot that is designed to use pet-like and child-like aspects to manipulate people into giving up their money. When it comes to charity, robot grifters will be the wave of the future. Take a look at the video below, don’t those cute little eyes warm your heart and break your wallet?

Personally I think a donation motivating robot that looked like a cute little Ewok would be more effective, however, they would probably have a tough time getting permission from Lucasfilm. Regardless, you have to admit that just the novelty of seeing a robot begging for change would cause everyone to donate at least something on their first go around. The real trick is making the robot so sadly irresistible that you cannot pass it by without giving something. DONA seems to be on the right track.
