The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Heart of Gold Infinite Improbability Drive Button

original movie prop

The Heart of Gold ship featured the first Infinite Improbability Drive, which was activated by pressing a huge button in the center of the console.  This is that button…  It's about a foot in diameter, features a large dome that still lights up, and some very intricate artwork on the dome and around the ring.  The artwork of characters and scenes around the button is an illustrated history of the Infinite Improbability Drive as well people that worked on the film and Douglas Adams himself. Douglas is at the top of the first picture, holding a glass of wine next to a hostess who's molecules of her undergarments appear to have jumped, simulataneously, one foot to the left.  (If you've read the book, you know the significance...  :) ) Apparently the director, producer and executive producer are also represented in the artwork...

The second image is from a different angle and with the light turned on.  There's also some little images underneath showing the button in it's on and off states. The primary IID button is in the middle of the ship's console, but there was a second button on the ship.  It's in the middle of the round table in front of the viewing screen as seen in the very last image.
