If you enjoyed the 2001: A Space Odyssey film released back in 1968, and always wanted your very own HAL 9000 computer, you might be interested to learn that the Thinkgeek website is now selling a full-size HAL 9000 computer for $500.
The HAL 9000 computer is based on the actual studio blueprints even down to the original studio files for the HAL 9000 label, making sure that everything is as in the film.
“In the film, the lens was a very rare and expensive Nikkor fish-eye lens. The HAL 9000 Life-Size Replica features a custom-ground replica, with a sticker of the writing on the Nikkor lens (in case you want your HAL to be accurate down to the close-ups).”-” But wait, there’s so much more. Of course the HAL 9000 Life-Size Replica has a red LED eye. And of course he talks (one of 15 movie quotes, randomly cycled through). But get this: HAL 9000 also responds to your voice. That’s right, say something to HAL longer than 1.2 seconds, and it’ll activate a sound clip. OR, point almost any IR remote at him and press a button for a sound clip.”
