2001’s Spaceship Recreated in Gingerbread Form

2001’s Spaceship Recreated in Gingerbread Form
2001: A Space Odyssey is a classic in just about every sense of the word. Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke created a true masterpiece. Douglas Trumbull’s miniatures and visual effects even rival today’s movies. It’s definitely one of my favorite films of all time.

HAL 9000 USB Drive: Open the Drive Bay Doors, HAL
We’re big fans of 2001: A Space Odyssey around here. There isn’t nearly enough 2001 merch available for fans, so when we see something nifty, we’ve gotta post it. This sweet Hal 9000 USB Drive helps to rectify that situation. Kubrick’s dystopian masterpiece is one of the greatest sci-fi films ever and one of the most influential films in history.

2001: A Space Odyssey Plush Dave Bowman: My God It’s Full of Stuffing
Can you believe that it’s been 50 years since the science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey premiered in theaters? It’s a far more esoteric movie than Star Trek or Star Wars, which is probably why there isn’t much in the way of merchandise to collect.

ThinkGeek IRIS 9000 Dock Controls Siri, Won’t Try to Kill You (Unless Your Name is Dave)
I can remember being freaked out by HAL 9000 when I was a kid. The thought of a computer that could think and try to kill you was pretty creepy. The main things I recall from the flick were that HAL said “Dave” a lot and had a glowing red eye that just glared at the screen when he spoke.

Designer Neil Poulton got the inspiration for the domed glowing light on the outside of his latest hard drive design from the red light on the face of HAL 9000, the infamous computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey. The new LaCie 5big Network storage array is designed for small and medium workgroups looking for a ton of storage at a reasonable price.

When I think of 2001: A Space Odyssey, it usually conjures up imagery of HAL 9000’s glowing red light, the strains of Also Sprach Zarathrustra, and dead astronauts launched silently into space. But the guys over at Studio Electronics used the film as inspiration for the design of their new Omega Orion synthesizer.

Atari 2600: a Video Game Odyssey

Atari 2600: a Video Game Odyssey
Remember the ape/monolith scene from Kubrick’s classic 2001:A Space Odyssey? Apparently these apes didn’t get the memo that it wasn’t an Odyssey [console] at all, but actually an Atari 2600. This imaginative t-shirt by Akron, Ohio illustrator psychoreindeer reimagines that fateful monkey moment with a gigantic Atari joystick in place of the big black slab.

Xbox 360: a Space Odyssey

Xbox 360: a Space Odyssey
Has your Xbox 360 ever overheated? Do you dread the three Red Rings of Death? Have I got a t-shirt for you. Inspired by the demented HAL9000 computer from the classic science fiction flick, 2001: A Space Odyssey, it shows the inimitable RRoD symbol along with the saying “I’m afraid I can’t let you play that, Dave.”
