ADA 9000

“ADA 9000” faceplate created using Adafruit 100mm Massive Arcade Button with LED and an afternoon with a laser cutter, spray paint and a few bits and bobs. Not as detailed or authentic as the HAL replica that ThinkGeek used to sell…but about $480 cheaper!

Fist bump to Amadeus Prokopiak of the Replica Prop Forum for his amazing HAL 9000 blueprint.

  1. This is great! I need to build one.

    Thought it needs an Adafruit Wave Shield that can plan “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that” when you press the button. :)

  2. Nicely done! WTG Phil!
