    That is epic. The article just kept getting better as he described the different iterations of prototypes.

    That...is awesome.
    I will keep my faith in the aftermarket for such a clever add-on, as I don't see LEGO wading into these waters.  I hope I'm wrong!  But I'm afraid it would make a Galaxy Explorer cost $200 bucks.

    ...but could you imagine looking through the yellow canopy to see those readouts blinking and flashing?!

    ...then again, I just remembered what they did with the Super Mario Starter Packs.  Those tiny screens on Mario, Luigi and Peach are not entirely dissimilar.  Maybe we will see something like this one day.

    I could see this becoming a thing as an Ideas set like a working mini-arcade machine or something.

    This feels like a 'Man Bites Dog' headline...

    That's cool. But it's not inside a brick already, it's just loosely shoved into a build.

    That Coriolis station spins wrongly.
    Would hate having to dock there
