Remember the monster in the classic movie Forbidden Planet? The entire generated power of the planet Altair IV allowed the monster to have almost limitless strength. This is an operational scale replica of the power panel from the movie. The gauges pulsate and light in the same sequence as in the movie showing the amount of power being drawn by the monster. The gauges are visible in all ambient light conditions. See it operate on https://youtu.be/EP19TU2k6hs.!

Using a CNC mill, hard maple has been carved to hold twelve gauges. A yellow LED is inside each gauge and a microprocessor inside the base controls the lighting of the LEDs simulating the activity of the monster in the movie. The model is stained and protected with a lacquer finish. A cell phone charger (provided) powers the panel and continuously cycles through the light sequence.
