Here’s another DIY project for you. It may be a tad more complicated than the DIY mobile phone stand I wrote about the other day, but you will not regret looking at these images.
Battlestar Galactica may very well be the best sci-fi TV show ever created, and those who fell in love with it know the emptiness that the end of the show brought. If you think I am exaggerating, go get the DVDs and watch!
So anyway, this guy called Boddaker must have been a hardcore fan, as he created a modified PC set up about three years ago, based on BSG. It may be three years old, but I think staring at the images will never get old. Words will not do his creation any justice, so here, take a look – and have something ready to wipe that drool.
The set up in all its glory.
The most welcome sight for many a pilot in the show – and the stressed out viewers as well.
Ingenious use of the logo.
Roslin’s favorite weapon. This one’s not so deadly and looks prettier, I think.
And how many times did DRADIS give you a near-heart attack while watching the series?
If those images are not enough to satisfy you, here is a video from the creator.
And if you want to give this a try yourself, here are the specs.

You can probably one-up this guy simply because of developments in technology, but he will always be the first to execute such a concept.
