A galactic shoutout to Adafruit forum user Jeff1701 and his Star Trek Original Series (ST:TOS) replica Computers Type 4 and 4B. He states:
Thought I would share my Star Trek Original Series computer prop replicas I built using Arduino Megas, the Adafruit MP3 Player Shield, and the 24 channel LED controller boards. Hope you enjoy them!
With the vintage switches, jelly bean lights, and TOS sounds, you bet!
Now if I could only get around to my own M-5 Computer build. . .
Here’s his other build video:

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
