Fans of the 1968 Stanley Kubrick movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” who want to experience what it actually feels to live their daily lives in the shadow of that reprehensible A.I. unit HAL 9000, now have the opportunity to purchase one of their own!
The HAL 9000 replica comes with 15 alarmingly calm HAL classic phrases and other goodies that will ensure that your home becomes a place of disturbing paranoia like that experienced by the film’s troubled astronauts!
It is on sale at ThinkGeek for $449.99 and is based on the actual studio blueprints. The Life-Size replica of course comes with infamous red LED eye that struck fear into the hearts of those in the movie and is also responds to your voice. If you speak to HAL for more than 1.2 seconds, it will activate a sound clip. You can also point pretty much any IR remote at the replica to also activate sound clips.
