Dad Creates a Homework Desk For His Son That Conceals an Ellaborate NASA Mission Control Console

Jeff Highsmith of MAKE recently created an elaborate mission control desk, inspired by the NASA Apollo Program, for his son. The desk is topped by a plain surface for homework—when it’s play time, the desk opens to reveal dozens of illuminated push buttons, dials, and digital readouts. Highsmith painstakingly wired the desk so that the buttons trigger sounds, lights, and other actions. Be sure to watch his video to all the way to the end to see it in action.
