Ever fancied having your very own HAL 9000 supercomputer from the 2001 Space odyssey film? Well Adafruit have published instructions on how to create your very own Adafruit HAL 9000 replica for less than $100.
HAL stands for Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer, and stars in both the 2001 and 2010 sequel odyssey film, and is fitted with an iconic red eye.
“Devoted film fans will spend countless hours and hundreds of dollars (occasionally even thousands) to create flawless replica props for their personal collections. The iconic eye of HAL 9000 from 2001: a Space Odyssey is one such object of desire…popular enough that detailed (and pricey) licensed reproductions exist. This is cool stuff! But if we relax our criteria just a bit, you or I can turn out a pretty decent, recognizable facsimile in a weekend for just a small fraction of the cost. The 80/20 rule in action!”
