Talking HAL9000-Replica, Dave!

ThinkGeek verkaufen eine 500 Dollar teure „Life Size“-Replika von Hal9000 aus Kubricks „2001“. Das Teil wurde nach den Originalplänen des Studios gebaut, kann reden und reagiert auf Stimmen.

First, the HAL 9000 Life-Size Replica wasn’t just based on memories. This replica is based on the actual studio blueprints, for exactly perfection (even down to the original studio files for the HAL 9000 label). 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.
