Bat Computer on display at Terrificon Connecticut

Post by ABrescia »

The Bat computer display was a great hit for young and old last weekend in Connecticut. It was also on stage with Burt Ward and Lee Meriwether during the Q and A. Bat phone also plays random calls from Batman and Commissioner Gorden when picked up ! I may post some build photos if people are interested

Also took some IBM punch cards and printed the 66 Batman logo on the front with riddles from the show on the back. A nice give away for the kids to take home.

The computer is terrific. I also like the pilot cowl that you have on. My favorite from the show.

You did a wonderful job on this! Is the Bat-Signal behind, Bob DeSimone also yours?

I know a lot of us would love to see some build photos!

Bat Signal was mine also . I will start on new thread on that build. It was harder and easier at the same time since there are no full pictures of the 66 Bat signal. I think it was a Mole Richardson film spot light ?
Here is a nice close-up up the IBM punch cards used with our Bat Computer display.

Just some build photos and a few links to parts. Did everything in 120V so no need for transformers, Used a Raspberry PI to loop the video clips.

Awesome work! What are the strips used on the seams? Aluminum flat stock? Are they glued on? What did you use for the metal parts on the shelf?

This is really sweet! Thanks for the component break-down and the WIP photos! I'd love to build something like this one day but I know I lack even the basic skills.

That is some amazing work right there... And thanks for those WIP pics, very impressive to see how this was built. Can I ask what the dimensions are? For those of us that might try this too one day...
