This is a model of the WOPR computer from War Games. The model was manually reconstructed by watching the same 39 seconds of the film over and over again. I took a few liberties in the rebuild.

(1) The recessed hatches and/or the overall length are not quite to scale (there actually should be a group of four rivets after the pair of panels).

(2) The real movie prop has a bit of an overhang at the floor, whereas I made the sides go straight down to the floor for easier MakerBot and RepRap printing.

(3) I made no attempt to model das blinkenlights.

(4) I only reproduced the large text.

(5) There may be an Easter Egg inside the hollow base for fans of TRON.

Slightly more detail on my blog: http://netninja.com/2012/08/03/is-that-a-wopr-in-your-pocket/


Print and enjoy, but do not start any global thermonuclear wars.

On a home 3D printer, you will absolutely have problems with the overhang, but a hobby knife and file should clean it up enough to be somewhat presentable.

A solid version of the model, without the TRON easter egg, is also attached.

I recognized the Easter egg

Can't seem to find it.

EDIT.. Haha.. Ok.. Just found it. Awesome!
I "recognize" it. =)

Would you mind uploading a solid version?

I don't know why, but part of me has been wanting a model of the WOPR forever.

Thank you for making/posting this. 8-)


how about Global Thermonuclear War
