Man spends $70K building his own working (sort of) Stargate



If you've got a spare $70,000 and are as big a fan of Stargate as Jacob Yarmuth of Louisville, Ky., you too can build a home theater that duplicates the gateroom of Atlantis.

That's just what Yarmuth did, according to Electronic House:

It surrounds a 10-foot diagonal circular screen that shows a 96-inch diagonal image. The circle within the Stargate can also light up blue, mimicking the water that appears in the show's Stargate prior to transport. ...
The theater, explains Phil Chaney, president of the Louisville division of Visual Concepts, uses a blend of styles from Stargate Atlantis, the original Stargate SG-1 TV series, and the 1994 movie. There are even air pocket doors that open like those on Star Trek and a star dome that shows comets streaking across the sky.


And for the technically inclined, here are more details:

The Stargate is made from MDF (medium-density fiberboard), with the symbols, or glyphs, of Lexan (a plexiglass-like resin). The glyphs and other effects in the room are backlit with large, old-style Christmas tree bulbs.
About the only thing it doesn't do is transport you across the galaxy in an instant. We'd say SOMEONE got ripped off.

I read about this a couple of weeks ago. It is crazy. If only I had that kind of disposable cash. I would have to make an SGC for airsoft. That would make for some great scenarios.

8) That is totally crazy, not to mention totally cool. Since he has so much money to waste on building that in his home, I wonder if he would be kind enough to have a Gate built for S.G. Ops for us to use for airsoft. It could be a great tax write off for him.. :lol:

OK, now here's the challenge to our group... get this 'cat' recruited into our group. Wow, that is a great thing to see, wish we all had that kind of money.
