The World Control Panel by Steve Lodefink

Design, Lodefink, panel

Steve Lodefink, a UI designer for the Walt Disney Internet Group in Seattle, enjoys tinkering. His latest project, The World Control Panel, was designed at the request of his son, Harlan. The old-school UI panel illuminates different areas of the world map depending on the switch flicked.

Harlan wanted a light panel to use for secret missions when he and his friend play "agents." The resulting UI design, which took three weeks to build, displays a variety of light combinations and includes a voice recorder and the Larson Scanner (used in Knightrider and Battlestar Galactica). See Harlan's tour below ↓
