This year is the 50th anniversary of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the tributes are pouring in. There was this book all about the movie I wrote about a litle over a week ago, and now there’s a pretty cool gadget revealed by the Master Replicas Group: A functional HAL 9000 Replica.
The HAL 9000 Replica can actually be communicated with verbally just like the real HAL, but unlike him he’s sharing his CPU with Alexa, who can give you weather updates and do pretty much anything provided it doesn’t involve any pod bay doors.
