    Quoted from Colsond3:

    I’m definitely having an actual backglass made. I was thinking of emailing the guy over at BGresto, but I know they do not do mirroring. Shay does, so maybe he would be able to help me out or point me in a direction. Open to any other suggestions or recommendations on this front.

    I believe Rich from www.thisoldgame.com made a real backglass for the guy who made the Goonies retheme. I thought about doing it for my Ash vs Evil Dead and Lost in Space rethemes but ending up going the translite route instead and have been happy with the results.

    Cool. I’ll reach out to him, and thanks for the info. I played your Ash v. Evil Dead at Pintastic last year. Awesome job on that game.

    Thanks. If you have any questions on your project that I might be able to help with let me know. I love reading all the homebrew project threads.

    Quoted from Colsond3:

    Backlighting the writing might be tough, or tough and very pricy. That's a lot of cut outs. Or maybe convert one of the acrylic aprons and just apply decals, and backlight the whole thing?

    If a stern metal apron with the windows in it fits, you could use one of those. Then you could lasercut pieces of acrylic sized to fit in the triangluar areas with logos/text/etc. That would probably be a lot cheaper than laser cutting the apron itself. That would also make it easier to try different designs and just swap em in and out til you find sometime you like.

    You could also fit a mini LCD in the apron window if you wanted some video or animated stuff instead of just backlit text.

    Quoted from Colsond3:

    I do like the idea. Maybe run some movie clips with a Raspberry Pi?
    So Doc, how much you want to combine these ideas and put a killer apron together for this thing? Haha

    If you want to just play assorted clips you can use one of the 4d smart displays. All the video processing stuff is built into the display so once you create your slideshow, animation, videos or whatever you put it on an SD card and the display will play automatically loop through them whenever +5v volts is applied.

    For Lost in Space they always did a cliffhanger at the end of each episode, copied the following year by Batman. So for the beginning of each new episode they would do a recap to show what happened and start it off with "Last Week As You Recall....". So I thought it would be cool to have the video clips for each episode play in a little LCD on the apron. This a 2.4" that I put in apron and made a plastic bezel to give it a cleaner look.
