I recently picked up a Panasonic model KX-T1450 EasaPhone AutoLogic answering machine to try to re-create the ‘black box’ from Sneakers.
As a geek, I loved this movie when it first came out. As a freedom-loving adult, when the hero Edward Snowden outted the NSA for spying on Americans, I immediately thought of this black box from Sneakers. So, now, I’m going to see if I can get the pieces together to build my own black box from the movie.
More to come…
After looking at the machine in person, it was modified by the prop-makers to make the box ‘taller’ (deeper inside).
I’m going to 3D print the gray spacer to get the look right. I’ve also guessed that the wires are just single strands of a gray IDE ribbon cable.
