"Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it I can sing it for you."
This is the HAL 9000 computer from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, right on your iPhone. Just click on HAL's eye and listen to what he has to say. Clicking on HAL's speaker will bring you to the soundboard, allowing you to manually play the best of HAL.
This will work on both the iPhone and the iPod touch, but the 1st gen touch will need headphones.
The Control Screen's artwork was inspired, and designed after the incredible artwork of the HAL Project. Visit the website at http://www.halproject.com
**I am no long able to update this application, nor upload the iPad version I created. It was fun while it lasted**
What's New in Version 1.6
- updated icon
- redesigned soundboard
- all sounds now accessible through soundboard
- application runs faster
- control board around HAL is now animated! - they still don't - have dedicated functions.
Awesome, but.... a suggestion
It seems cool, and I like it. Just thought maybe I’d make a suggestion.... In the manual mode, you can have multiple audio sounding at once, which for some people might like, but maybe have an option that when you click on a different audio, the current audio stops, and switches to the new one select, so they don’t overlap each other. But it's still awesome, and I can live with just waiting for the current audio to finish.
Some apps stay, most get deleted over time. This one has been on there a long time. Sometimes I just look at it before I go to sleep like I'm keeping an eye on the scrollng info that comes through and the map sections. Nothing eventful happens, so it puts me to sleep which is exactly what I like to happen. Now if I can only find an app that runs a screen that displays like the first computers that came out. Thanks to the developer for putting this one out!
Great! HAL's words at my fingers
A nice little app that does exactly as it says. It reminds me of a time years ago when I had my Windows system sounds all set to play HAL dialogue. Now I can do so on my phone. For those who are reviewing negatively and claiming it doesn't work, remember to turn up the ringer volume and unmute the phone. That got me at first, too. Contacted the developer and heard back in minutes. Always contact the developer before negatively reviewing an app!
