Letâ€™s be honest, most of us are guilty at some point in our lives at pretending to sonic a door open after watching your favorite Doctor Who story. Some of us even go to great lengths to have a sonic screwdriver of our own. Whether itâ€™s a toy or a prop replica or a home made sonic from left over bit and bobs around the house. There are even those of use who can turn a closet into a TARDIS, those who make themselves a real Police Box and those who even can turn a nightstand into a TARDIS console.
Iâ€™d love to pretend those are all kids from the age of 12 and under, but this is Doctor Who weâ€™re talking about right? â€œKidsâ€ means from 80 and under.
(Alternatively, watch it on YouTube)
So, who like to make their home computer be their TARDIS console? Who wants it to look as authentic as they can? I know I do, and for the past 5 years I have been hoping that someone who help make that dream come true (I know, but itâ€™s my life) and the other day while surfing the youtube world I stumbled upon the perfect thing. To all the Moms and Dads turning their kids rooms into the TARDIS console room and to all the slightly taller fans who want to turn their work PC into the Doctorâ€™s trust companion, this link’s for you.
The artist responsible for this labor of love is known as Richard B and he has spent countless hours researching and perfecting a full motion screen saver of the 2005-2010 TARDIS scanner screen used by the likes of Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant. The work put into this piece is impressive to say the least, but whatâ€™s even cooler is that you donâ€™t have to keep going to youtube to see it. Richard B has kindly left links at the end of the video to wallpapers and PC screen savers of his work for all to enjoy (fear not Mac users he is working on a Mac format screensaver as well.)
Now kids and adults alike can turn their home computer into the most impressive time machine ever created! Makes me wish I were 10 again. But then Iâ€™m not so sure I ever really did grow up.
I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did. Many thanks to Richard Brookes for all his hard work, and you can download his excellent screensaver and wallpaper right here.
