    Wow! That must be sooooo cool to be involved with a company that makes props for such big name movies! Impressive, most impressive.

    I only manage. I don't get to really build anything. But it is a lot of fun. Everyday is different.

    Like I said...It is fun. We see different stuff everyday. It's a bit of stress though. The deadlines are awful. Many times, we have to build a gadget that has motion and is built from scratch in the same day. We pull many 18 to 22 hour days. AWFUL!

    BTW. I was watching ESB on DVD last night...man I cannot tell what Boba's chest display says. How in the hell did you guys figure that out from the analog video tape. The DVD is way clearer but it's still almost impossible to see.

    I can ony speak for myself and say ... No possible WAY I could have figured it out. Luckily, I had a lot of motivated individuals offering up information back when mine were developed. The sequence I used was based on what a few individuals agreed upon was screen accurate (or as close as they could possibly tell after frame-by-frame analysis).

    Hopefully the characters will be clearer on the up-coming ESB DVD.

    I've had a chance to preview the new ROTJ DVD, and there is nothing that shows or clarifies the chest light display in ROTJ.

    I gotta watch them again. I just don't see how to tell from these images. I've frame grabbed and I cannot tell what they read from the DVDs.

    I know I am very interested in these displays. They are awesome. I need a new piece to get me motivated into working on stuff again. I've been stuck at about v 1.4 for too long now.

    The boards will be here in two weeks. We reduced the footprint as much as possible. We spaced the LEDs based on the online specifications. This thing looks excellent. The battery cord can be extended very easily.
