Star Trek White Noise Sleep Machine

I think $150 is waaayyy over priced though ???

Well, it's got a projector as well as a large touch screen display, so maybe not too overpriced.
I'd get one if it wasn't so darn big, it's almost a foot square.
If it projected a random episode of TNG or DS9 from a hard drive, then I think it would be worth the money :o

Turns out it wasn't a real product anyway, it was one of their April fools joke items.  Take out the projector and make it a regular alarm clock and they probably would sell a ton of them at $30 or so...
D'OH!  I hate April Fools Day >:(

Done with painting my Romulan warbird, I'll wait a few days before putting the bird decal on, trying out crushed aluminum foil inside the clear nacelle domes, not sure if I'm going to keep it that way.

The front ports came out misaligned a bit, kind of bummed about that but it's only noticeable very close up or in pictures of course...

Horribly fragile decals for this thing, had to go pick up some paint to mix and match the red/orange color to paint over the holes, but it came out OK:
