OnStar communicator


I was intrigued by this little gadget from the OnStar commercials:

My first thought was, that looks almost like an iPod Nano. Sooo...

I got a dead one from ebay, stripped it out, and added a small louvered vent plus a few scrap model parts. Voila!

It's not entirely screen accurate, but I'm happy with the result. It's held onto the glove with a badge magnet, because the last thing I want to do is damage the glove. I probably need two magnets to hold it firmly, but you get the idea.

That's pretty cool. What's cool using the magnets is that you could have it attach to your utility belt also.

That's sweet! I really love little things like that, which add that "gadgetry" to the suit. To the average onlooker, it is just cool. They're probably thinking 'whoa, what does that do?'

Great job and good idea finding a dead Nano on eBay!

That's really cool. Isn't it funny how the On-Star commercials were better than the last 5 Batman films?
