Nothing can go wrong.... Hal 9000 is on the iPhone
It's basically a still of HAL, with lots of his famous sayings from both 2001 and the 1984 sequel, 2010. The real voice of HAL was Canadian actor Douglas Rain.
Don't know how MGM, owner of the two films, or actor Rain will feel about their work being appropriated for this app, but sound clips of HAL have been floating around on computers for a long, time. Images of HAL have also been used as desktops and wallpaper on computers and phones.
The author of the program, Jonathan Mulcahy is a Boston Systems Engineer. Not surprisingly, he used to fool around with robotics.
