Nerdiest Home Theater Ever?

I'm pretty proud of my TV setup at home. I got a decent TV, surround sound, all sorts of HD content, but some folks take their setups to quite the extreme. I've seen loads of these over the years, I'm a big fan of Home Theater Magazine, but this guy's set-up caught my attention for obvious reasons...



This rooms comes with life-size R2-D2 and C-3PO replicas which apparently talk. A motorized pocket door for the entrance and a ceiling featuring a three-dimensional fiber optic star-scape.




The back of the room houses a DLP projector that displays a 107-inch curved anamorphic display.

How much does something like that cost? No idea. CNET guesses hundreds of thousands. And judging from the Hawaiian house that the little theater is located in, my guess is...more than nothing.




There have been some other Star Wars themed theaters, but this one's full on commitment is to be commended. Although, I don't think it would be something I would go for if I had the means. It's cool and all but, can you imagine watching say, Taxi Driver in that room?
