"Global Link" prop reproduction (from "Earth: Final Conflict")

Recommended Posts

Posted · "Global Link" prop reproduction (from "Earth: Final Conflict")

I enjoy making reproductions of sci-fi props. This one is the "Global Link" smartphone from the TV show Earth: Final Conflict (which aired a decade before the first iPhone).

With convenient belt clip!

The show had a few versions of the prop (opened to various degrees, closed, and a "hero" version which used an accordion arm and something like a miniature window roller shade to show the screen extruding from a case apparently too small to contain it). Still sourcing the parts for a hero version, but I could at least make the static versions.

Modeled in Blender, based on screenshots from episodes throughout the first season.

Really cool! I understand correct that you have made 2 versions, one open and one closed?

Have you made other props too?

You should also check out our current contest in which you can win an Ultimaker 3.

It is about cosplay and prop making :)

Wow - your work is really impressive. Do you sell them cause I'd be very interested in buying one.

You should make one in which you can insert your smartphone, so it can actually be used. With a slider system. That would be really cool.  :-)

 

It might require a bit adaptation of dimensions, but as long as it is immediately recognisable...

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
