Dad Builds Amazing Mission Control Desk

If there is such a thing as the Dad Oscars, this guy is going to clean up.

Inspired by a trip to the Kennedy Space Center, Jeff Highsmith designed and built this incredible mission control desk, based on the Apollo Program and NASA's Mission Control Center, for his two sons.

The LEDs and sound effects are controlled via a Raspberry Pi and can be triggered via a range of cool-looking buttons and switches.

Check out the full story here and by watching the video below, then sadly realise that your dad is not as good as Jeff.
