UPDATE: You can now buy a high-res poster of this image here.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Jurassic Park post, and even longer since I released a geeky wallpaper (not counting train maps), so this fits the bill nicely. This wallpaper recreates the desktop seen in the first film.
I always thought it would be cool to have a fake hand scanner hanging on the wall by a door. It would give your place a real Bond villain vibe. It could feature some built-in functionality like a light switch or thermostat, but more or less it would just be for show.
The green light conveys motion using an animated sequence, the yellow light is shaped like a caution triangle, and the red light is shaped like a stop sign, but with an animated white border to show more urgency and danger.
This might be ideal for color-blind folks, who might appreciate the different shapes.
Originally this was slated to be part of the Mad Scientist Gear series, but I decided to make these a regular feature. Introducing Wile E. Coyote’s series of blueprints featuring backfiring trap designs.
These will be facsimiles of the blueprints as they appeared in the cartoons. I know they look very clean and simplistic, but that’s how they looked. I’m sure you could add a ‘worn paper’ look to the images easily enough if you so choose.
I would like Warner Bros. to offer these as posters, but they currently do not. For now they’ll do as desktop wallpapers. Or you could go to Fathead.com and get yourself a wall decal. Or you could get some actual blueprints made! Decisions decisions.
Two large sizes and one for the iPhone, click to enlarge:
I will post a new blueprint every so often. Hope you like them!
You might have seen those beautiful wood alarm clocks with displays that peer through the wood in the front. That was the approach here, with the addition of Janine’s “WE GOT ONE” button on top that functions as a snooze button.
