Life-size HAL 9000 Replica is 100% Accurate

If you are a science fiction fan odds are you have watched the Stanley Kubrick classic 2001: A Space Odyssey. Easily the most memorable character in that movie wasn't a person, rather it was the insane computer system HAL 9000. ThinkGeek recently announced a new product that is a life-size replica of the HAL 9000 computer.

This isn't some plastic cheap toy, it costs $499.99 and is made from machined anodized aluminum. The device was built from the actual 1967 blueprints and image files the movie studio used for the film. ThinkGeek says that in the movie HAL used a rare and expensive NIKKOR fish-eye lens.

The reproduction uses a custom ground replica lens and even has a sticker on it with the same writing from the lens used in the movie version. That means the replica is accurate even down to the close-up shots. The coolest part is that the replica HAL can talk. When you twist the lens ring, the device wakes up and will say one of 15 random movie quotes when you talk to it. This thing isn't cheap, but it sure is cool.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
