Jeff Highsmith is probably the best dad in the world. It's OK, other dads, you can take a shot at the king if you too build an incredibly awesome mission control desk. What are you waiting for?
Built from scratch and chronicled on MAKE, this mission control desk has everything: buttons, sliders, dials, switches, covered switches. All that's missing is an actual spaceship (bed) to control with them. With a control panel this awesome though, it's totally possible to totally overlook that deficiency.
Dad, I think I know what I want for my birthday this year. And yes, I am painfully aware that I am a grown man. [MAKE]
