Lost in Space prop computer remake

Brian Mix shows off his replica Jupiter 2 computer, a remake based on the 1960s TV Lost in Space show -- which was also used as the 1966 Bat Computer in the Batman TV show.



The TV shows of the 1960s used surplus, 1950s-era Burroughs B205s whenever they needed something cool and blinkenlighty. Online prop fandom fetishizes them and trades plans and manuals for making their own, which can be kitted out with the original dials and switches, which are all still in production because they're standard milspec components.
