My next big project will be to build a replica Burroughs B205 Console. What is that you say? Well, if you are at my website because of the BTTF Flux Capacitor, I'm 100% sure you seen a B205 Console, but maybe you didn't know what it was called. Yes, every single Sci-Fi movie and TV show from the late 1950's to present has had one of these consoles somewhere. Well, not everyone, but dozens. The B205 was featured in the Batcave in both the Batman movie as well as the TV show from the 60's. The Jupiter II, from Lost in Space had three of them on the flight console as well as several others mounted into panels throughout the spaceship. Hogan's Heroes and the Green Hornet had them. They were also present in movies like The Angry Red Planet (1959), Fantastic Voyage (1966), Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973) and a Burroughs B205 Tape Drive appeared in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me in 1999.
