    May 13, 2009, 12:58 PM - Custome Holo Pad #1

    Hey everyone. I just wanted to show off this little project that TubaChris and I have been working on. The idea was sparked form a picture I saw of a Royal Guard holding a Holopad with a hologram Palpatine. Well, since I am working on a Royal Guard I figured why not!
    Right now this pad does have a blue LED lighting to simulate the blue glow of a hologram and the pad itself is fully complete. We have also started the molding of a Palpatine bust to cast in clear blue resin which would fit on top finishing the effect of the Holopad. As of now all I have to show is the pad itself but the Palpatine should be following suit very soon! Hope you guys like and any feed back is GREATLY appreciated!!
    Will keep you all in the know.
    Cheers!

    Now for some Pics:

    That's one of the best I've seen! Would you consider doing a run of those?

    Hey, this tubachris here, lol, don't ask!

    But the holo pad was made using found hardware parts. We honestly don't know what the pieces are used for or even really technically named..pretty much saw it, liked it, got it. To be completly honest..we winged the whole build and got this result. We feel it came out very nice, considering that we figured it out. It involved some wiring, addition of magnets and some extra hardware to put this together.

    If anyone is interested, we are prepared to do a run of these in the near future if there is a good number interested in these.

    Hey if there is enough intrest, I am sure that there could be a run done, I don't see why not. It will probably start once everything is complete including the Emperor hologram bust. Though, that would involve going back to Home Depot and trying to find the parts again .
    Still toying with some of the wireing and also thinking about doing a Clone version down the road depending on how accepted this one is.
    Thanks again for all your kind words and looking forward to showing completed pics!
    Cheers!

    Wow, that's really cool. I really like that, and I also would like to grab one up (along with the Clone trooper one if you do make it). I'm looking forward to see how the Palpatine came out as well.

    Hey everyone just wanted to update how this is coming along. Well, pictured is the first pull from a plaster mold. It was casted in cheap clear resin that actually turned a bit yellow. Not sure if it was cause it was cheap or that we used vasaline as a lubricant. Either way it turned out beautiful when lighted up! This is only a proto as it will be modded to fit intop the pad itself and it does need a little editing here and there. For the final it will be molde din silicon and cased in hopefully better resin or might just keep the same sinc eit was affordable and try a different lubricant. Either way hope you all enjoy and let me know what you think.

    Cheers!

    Hey totally forgot about this thread lol. Well as an update I put the projec tn hold till be Fet was done....well Fett is done for now (always more to work on). So I am going to rework the holopad and get things rolling again. Trying to figure out a more functional wayof turning on and off the leds. So should start this back up in the coming weeks.
    Cheers!
