Breaking down random set pieces from the cold opening
« on: December 01, 2017, 10:38:57 PM »
So a late night at the office and the wife being out of town gives the world this mismash of data

Opening:

Wheaton Headset: - David Clark aviation headset, likely an HT-30:

Desk Mic: 60s Calrad Space Age Mic:
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/N2MAAOSwEotZwum6/s-l1600.jpg
This is not the specific one, or if it is the one in the show has a different connector.
Chair: unknown

Kinga Panel:

3x square buttons = Unknown
Center button = Mushroom head push button
3x round buttons = bottoms of easter eggs
Rubber tubing
Mic on back desk = looks like a Shure Super 55, but I don’t think they would use that as a background prop.

Backjack cockpit left to right:

Left Panel: Left half is a Grass Valley secondary video editing panel mounted sideways, right half is unknown – I imagine this was handmade.
TV – late 2000s Westinghouse or Samsung tv
Drumset - PDP by DW FS Series Drum Kit Red to Black:
Right panel – Grass Valley Kayak with some extra parts.


Backjack control panel

Back panel = a print out – same one used by Wil Wheaton – like (left to right): ly the control panel for the Backjack is one that was used by the puppets.  It has the print out all the way across.
Box on Panel = Unknown – looks like an old mainframe panel or an analogue synth panel – like a Serge.
Seat = Unknown – I have feelers out with a buddy who knows cars.  My gut is a mid 90s VW Eurovan seat.
Steering Wheel = wide center steering wheel with top and bottom cut off and the ends coated with yellow plasticdip
Jonahs Headset = Another David Clark HT-30 headset and  Sennheiser headphones
Speaker = generic full range speaker with a yellow cone with a square plate.
Joystick = Wilco Atari 2600 Command Joystick – Bat Handle.
Screen = green screen box
Right Panel = Another Grass Valley Video Switcher.  The upper right corner is the GVG key block
