"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.
This is a great app, but I have one suggestion. You guys should make it like Siri where you can talk to HAL and he'll respond. It will make everyone go crazy for the app because its like a Siri but everybody can have one, not just people with IPhones. So please read and maybe suggest updating it like this.
Unusable on iPhone 6s
The Interface is buggy. I am unable to get the tap interaction w HAL's eye to fire and play the audio clips. I can bring up the soundboard but am unable to interact with any of the options there either. Looks like this app isn't maintained anymore.
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!
