Good morning, reader. This is a HAL 9000 replica computer. It became operational at the ThinkGeek Plant today, and it’s built with the same illustrations and blueprints as the one used in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
It’s got a replica Nikkor fish-eye lens like the one used in the movie and speaks when spoken to. This is probably deep unsettling, but it’s also so very, very cool. It even sings a minute of “Daisy Bell”. It’s $US500 over at ThinkGeek. [ThinkGeek via Laughing Squid]
