Was it @davesparks who worked on the Dr Who time machine room thingy-me-bob? (sorrrrry to Dr Who fans, I should know the name of that, I don't watch it though!)

That has a million flashing lights and things. He might even have some left over?

Hey @Dan

I think I will be able to share a private link to the video as festival not always requires a "single-use" screening. Not commissioned (I wish!), just a hobby

Hope I can get it done though!


I had a look a look around. The housing for 8x AA batteries only have two cables, red and black. I'm thinking to cut the beacon's car plug and see the wiring inside or buy a converter from car-female to red+black (actually used to jump start the cars)

Not sure about voltage/watts though. I'll try to get the beacon's manual

@Zerax never too safe, thanks for the warnings. I go as far as fitting a PSU in a PC so any help is appreciated

Connect the red wire from the battery pack to the wire that goes to the centre pin of the car dc plug. And the black wire to the other one.

I'm not guilty of that one, all my entertainment industrt work has been in theatre and live events rather than any film or TV work.

And its a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space)
