Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories – Make A Cylon Jack-O-Lantern
The scanning eye of the Cylons is awfully similar to the one that KITT had on Knight Rider. It’s possible that KITT was built by Glen A. Larson using recycled Cylon technology. As some people have pointed out, the scanner also similar to the eye of the robot Gort in The Day the Earth Stood Still. You can even watch the relevant clip from that movie on YouTube, but you might notice that it’s not quite the same.
Although the basic premise is the same, for some reason there are a lot more KITT circuits than Cylon circuits floating around on the net. (There are some Cylon circuits; Here is one that looks complicated!) The starting point for our circuit is the “standard” KITT scanner circuit. There are quite a few variations on the basic theme, and we’ll pick and choose the parts that we like.
